It's Daddy's day out with toddler Trixie, and they're off to the Laundromat! Daddy holds on to Trixie's hand; Trixie holds on to Knuffle Bunny, her beloved stuffed animal. They go down the block, through the park, past the school, until finally they reach their destination. And what a helper Trixie is! With her daddy by her side, she loads laundry and coins into the machine. But on their walk home, Trixie realizes her bunny is missing. Trixie's too little to speak, so how will she tell her daddy what's wrong? Simple text and an adorably expressive Trixie make this the perfect story for reading together.
Students feel such empathy for Trixie in Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale, it's easy for them to produce writing to go along with this activity. Students are happy to see Trixie reunited with Knuffle Bunny.
