When Bernard is awake he acts like any normal rabbit should. But when he is asleep he dreams of less rabbity things. There’s more to being a rabbit than twitching your nose, pricking your ears and eating carrots. And Bernard is going to show his friends who he really is…
This is a funny and fantastic read that is a celebration of embracing your differences and being who you really are. Bernard’s friends are horrified by his un-rabbit-like actions but a little bit of self-expression can go a long way. And once Bernard shows who he really is it isn’t long until the other rabbits are celebrating their true selves too, whether it’s dreaming of cheese or boogieing with Bernard at the disco, these furry friends may all be rabbits but they are certainly not the same.
I love this book and young readers will too! It is full of adorable illustrations and is a cracking ode to self-expression and being accepted by others for who you truly are. As Bernard says, “Even though we’re all the same in many ways, we can all agree that…being yourself is the BEST thing a bunny can be!”
Why blend in when you were born to stand out? Let’s all ‘Be More Bernard.’
