Bubbit is a very special bunny. The little girl has had him since she was a baby. Her Nonni made him for her. He’s blue, with a red ribbon, and a row of little x’s on his foot. In just a few weeks, the little girl will have a sibling. Her Nonni comes to stay over and they decide to make a new friend for her baby brother, just like Bubbit.
After deciding to make an elephant for her little brother, they look for just the perfect fabric. They have a lot of choices, but Bubbit seems to think the elephant should be yellow. Using one of the girl’s favorite coats, they work together to make her new brother a wonderful friend. Nonni stitches her special x’s on the elephant’s foot and they blow lots of kisses into him before stitching him up.
This is a sweet story about family and new arrivals that’s perfect to share with your little one when they’re about to have a brother or sister. They might be inspired to make something special for their new sibling.
