Title

Pat the Bunny

Description

"In the nursery canon, Dorothy Kunhardt's touch-and-feel book ""Pat the Bunny"" holds a place of special affection. Since 1940, tiny children have delighted in sniffing the scented drawings of flowers and stroking the rough material on ""Daddy's scratchy face."" Part of what has made the book so beloved--it has sold some six million copies--is the balance it strikes between gentle, confiding language and illustration that has just a hint of weirdness to it.
