Bionic Bunny is a television super hero. He has large muscles. His watch is powerful. Bionic Bunny's ears and nose have special powers.
In the book, The Bionic Bunny Show, the writers take children to a television studio. The children look forward to seeing the great Bionic Bunny. They meet a regular bunny. The bunny wears a padded costume. His shoes has lifts. The ears and watch are props. Everything is an illusion.
The back page of the book contains television technical terms and their meaning. For example, the word teleprompter and its definition is given. The authors invites children to reread the story and find the words.
The book explains the world of television. Everything on television is not what it seems. How many children have jumped from garages or porches believing they were super heroes? This book will cut the numbers of children doing so significantly.
The book is perfect for toddlers and early elementary students. Children at this age is quite impressionable. They have trouble differentiating between fact and fiction. Take a moment to read the story and discuss the picture book's message. This will save future injuries.
