The bunnies wake up to hundreds and hundreds of colorful balloons floating through their town one day: red ones, blue ones, silver and black. They float into buildings, buses, stores, and the streets. Balloons, balloons they are all around, blanketing the town.

“I love all the balloons.  I love all the bunny rabbits and the mommy bunny rabbits and the babies.”

“What is your favorite color balloon?”
“Black.”

“Do you think the book was silly?”
“Yes.”

“Why?”
“Because I love it. I love the doggy.”

Parent’s comments:
“Balloons, Balloons, Balloons” is a good book for working on colors and introducing rhyming words. The repetition is easy to follow and a nice lead-in for other poetry books.
