    The last in the Knuffle Bunny series and is so sweet it makes me want to cry. The epilogue at the end is really sweet too. Trixie becomes "of age" and no longer needs her Knuffle Bunny" so she gives it away to a crying baby on a plane. I just think that this is such a wonderful conclusion to a wonderful series. Of course I wish it would have gone on for a few more books but I am glad it ended this way. What a great series!

    Mo Willems' book, Knuffle Bunny Free: An Unexpected Diversion, is about growing up. Trixie went on a plane to visit her grandparents in Holland, and in doing so left her "Knuffle Bunny" on the plane. During her trip with her grandparents, without her stuffed bunny, Trixie learned how to grow up. When she got on the plane to go home, her "Knuffle Bunny" was on the plane! However, Trixie grew up! She gave her prized possession to a baby on the plane, and in turn got a pen pal out of it.

    Trixie and her parents go to Holland to visit her grandparents. When they arrive, Trixie realizes something is missing - her Knuffle Bunny. This time, he may be gone forever.The third and final episode in the Knuffle Bunny series, Knuffle Bunny Free is stylistically and structurally identical to the first two books. In typical Knuffle Bunny fashion, Mo Willems creates fantastic images that are composed of black-and-white photographs and hand-drawn illustrations. A excellent ending to the series, this book is sure to please.

    This book has a nice story with likable characters. The message of "growing up" is an important one for students learning to read.I would use this story at a time when the class is struggling to behave.

    Trixie is terrific! A book about a girl and her stuffed bunny but that is also the perfect book about any child growing up. A fun and happy read for kids but one that is sure to leave lots of parents a little emotional.

    Trixie and her beloved Knuffle Bunny toy bunny go on a trip to visit her grandparents in Holland. After a little bit of time visiting, Trixie realizes that Knuffle Bunny was left behind at the airport. Her parents and grandparents try to cheer her up in various ways and remind her how big she's getting. However, a surprise twist awaits for Trixie and Knuffle Bunny ...As with the other Knuffle Bunny titles, there's a good deal of realism and humor peppered throughout this book. In addition, this book contains a great lesson about dealing with problems and helping others. Once again, the book is illustrated with a combination of photographs overlaid with drawings. In addition to photographs of the family's Brooklyn neighborhood and the airport, there are lovely scenic photos from Holland and around the world, which are beautiful to look at and can open up conversations about geography, beautiful monuments, other cultures, etc.The kids in my kindergarten class loved, loved, loved the first Knuffle Bunny book and would ask me to read every week. When I saw this book at my local library, I knew I had to check it out for them (even if it did mean we ended up skipping over the second one, which was not available at the time). As predicted, they were thrilled to see that there was another Knuffle Bunny book and loved it right away. They asked me to read this one a number of times in the few weeks we had it in our classroom. I also had the book with me at a recent family barbeque and started reading it to my 2-year-old niece. Soon a few other kids (and some parents) wandered over as well and everyone got a good laugh - and some awws - out of Knuffle Bunny and Trixie's adventures!

    I loved this series! I am kind of sad to see it go (if this is, in fact, the end). I loved the illustrations - the cartoon characters against real-life photography - and how well they complemented the story of Trixie and her KA-Nuffle Bunny!

    A delightful conclusion to the Knuffle Bunny saga. And especially fun after getting to see Jacqueline Woodson speak earlier this week and hearing how Trixie and her daughter are real life friends and how the Willems and the Woodsons feature each of the girls in their various books.

    A sweet end (or new beginning?) for Knuffle Bunny.

    This was a fun read for a children's book, one that included travel, grandparents, interesting illustrations, and a nice ending. I liked this book a lot!
  • (5/5)
    This is a really sweet book about a girl having to let go of her beloved stuffed animal. The illustrations were cool because the characters were hand drawn in Mo Willems' signature style, but the backgrounds were all black and white photographs. It was funny, sad, and heartwarming at different times. The end is really sweet when there is a look into the future of knuffle bunny. I would recommend this book to an elementary school kid but anyone will enjoy it.

    A wonderful story about growing up and letting go of one's security blanket. Mo Willems brings "real life" to young children in an engaging way.

    Characters: Trixie, her parents and grandparents, the crying baby in the plane, her babySetting: In HollandTheme: Family, growing upSummary: Trixie is visiting her Oma and Opa in Holland. When she arrives at their house, she realizes Knuffle Bunny is missing. Her dad calls the airline, but they say the plane had left for China. She is sad, but tries to cheer up and have fun with her family since now she is getting bigger. But her family, including herself, know she still misses Knuffle Bunny. So her family gives her a surprise present: A bunny doll that walks, speaks, and dances, which fails to put her in a better mood. On the flight back, she finds her Knuffle Bunny, but generously gives it up for the crying baby. The story seems to end with her receiving a thank you letter from the baby boy, who becomes her first pen pal, but it does not until she grows up, becomes a mom, and receives a package from her dad. Inside there is Knuffle Bunny, which Trixie's baby boy happily hugs, from her old pen pal.Review: It is interesting how the illustrator used real photos as a background and drew characters upon them. It creates a sense of reality. Also, children are given opportunities to vicariously travel Holland and China. The book was amazingly cute and warm fuzzy. Curriculum ties: Social studies and geography (around the globe), decision makingAward: Caldecott honor

    This is a good book about a young girl who did not wish to grow up, but once she came to terms with the idea she was able to help out more than just herself. She was able to help a younger child get through a rough time that she was able to overcome easily.

    Trixie and Knuffle Bunny take off on plane to visit her grandparents. But where does Knuffle Bunny end up? Now that Trixie is a little older and wiser, see what decision she makes. The final book in the Trixie trilogy.

    This book is great for discussing with children how sometimes you have to let go of something you love, like a toy or stuff animal. The art in this book is phenomenal.

    Trixie loses Knuffle Bunny and moves through the childhood sadness of parting with a comforting toy. Trixie is elated when Knuffle Bunny is found, but shows how she has grown up without her friend around. This touching finale to the Knuffle Bunny trilogy will have parents in tears.

    Trixie is excited about going to Holland to see her grandparents. But after she gets to her grandparents' house she discovers she left Knuffle Bunny on the plane! She tries not to let it ruin her trip and her fun she's having with her family. Miraculously, as she's getting on the plane to go home she finds Knuffle Bunny in the same spot she left it in the plane. But the baby behind her is screaming and not liking the plane ride so she gives him Knuffle Bunny...to keep. The book ends, though, with "A Note to Trixie" where it shows photos/illustrations of her graduating and starting a family of her own. The last picture is her opening a box with Knuffle Bunny in it, with a note that says "From an old pen pal. Love, Daddy" A personal note from Mo Willems to his daughter perhaps? Very touching story about growing up and giving!I read Knuffle Bunny years ago when I was in college but have yet to see the rest of the series until now. I especially love this final book because it involves traveling, my number one hobby. The ending, where Trixie gives Knuffle Bunny to a child crying on the plane...forever is my by far my favorite part. And if that doesn't get you the continuation of Trixie's life as a mother is especially touching.

    Love, love, LOVE this one as well! The first one is unforgettable. The second one is ok but this final of the series is worth adding to our collection. Adorable pictures as always but more touching and sentimental as Trixie grows up; daughter loved it and wanted to see real pics of Mo Willems daughter

    I think that this book is a great story to read with younger students. It has many options for discussion topics. This book makes it easy to open a discussion about finding feelings in a story and to talk about how people feel. The illustrations are amazing and it is an all together great story.

    I enjoyed the artistic style of this book's pictures more than the actual text. I thought that the way he used real photographs then inserted his unique art into the photos was very creative, and visually appealing, and something I had never seen before. I did like how the girl in the story ended up giving Knuffle Bunny to the crying child on the airplane, which shows children as very compassionate and thoughtful.

    This is another great book from the knuffle bunny series. After losing and then finding Knuffle Bunny Trixie makes a bold and grown up choice to give her bunny away. This a great read aloud book about family, friendship and growing up.

    Another of Mo Willems' beloved "Knuffle Bunny" series, "Knuffle Bunny Free" takes you all around the world to Holland, China, India and Mongolia. Trixie learns that she's "big enough" and ready to let go of Knuffle Bunny and decides to give her Knuffle Bunny to the crying baby sitting behind her on the plane. An extensive vocabulary builder with words like passenger, relieved, unexpected, diversion, oma, opa, strange, windmill, understood, realized, carnival and Holland.

    That's a great little story. I read the first one, where she lost Knuffle Bunny in the laundromat, which was cute. Here she's going on a trip to Holland, and leaves her bunny on the plane. She manages to get through the trip (she's maybe 5? 6?), and even enjoy herself sometimes. Then on the way home, she gets the chance to choose - and finds she's "big enough" to do without her bunny. And I absolutely love the postscript. I was actually crying, in the bookstore, as I finished the book. Love it.

    And I'm not entirely convinced this one really happened, either. The ending is a bit contrived - but who knows?I'm putting a spoiler warning on this, and unfortunately most of the review needs it, so be aware if you read on (and care):Trixie and her family are going to Holland (where they say the K in Knuffle!) to visit her grandparents. Naturally, Trixie loses her Knuffle Bunny on the plane. How does she keep doing this? You'd think that by now she'd know better than to leave her bunny everywhere! Well, she was asleep, so I guess the real question is how her parents let it happen this time. At any rate, she loses her bunny, and there's no going back. The plane? Is headed to China.And no, nobody is going to chase off to China to get a stuffed toy. There are limits. Oh, her family hugs her and kisses her and reassures her about what a big girl she's getting to be, and she KNOWS she's getting to be a big girl, but that doesn't make her feel any better.And she has a fun trip, but that doesn't make her feel any better, and her grandparents even try replacing her toy with a fancy bunny, but that really doesn't make her feel any better.Eventually, though, she comes to terms with this with a nice dream about other children playing with her bunny, and that helps. (This is on two fold-out pages. How much you enjoy this probably depends on whether this book is for home use (easy to manage) or classroom/library use (disaster!!!), but either way I suggest you use acid-free tape if you plan to save the book for generations.)However, after she's had her big moment and her growing-up stage, she goes on the plane, which is the EXACT SAME PLANE and sits in the EXACT SAME SEAT and finds - her bunny! OMG! (So... they didn't clean this plane for, like, a week? Two weeks? Ew.)And now she's such a big girl she's able to give her bunny to the crying baby to cheer him up. (Why couldn't she just LEND the bunny? Big girl, but realistic.)SPOILER ENDING.It's a good book, but as others have noted - a kid who's not yet in the age range where they can start giving up their precious toys? They're not going to get it. It won't be bittersweet, it'll just be sad, pointlessly sad. If they ARE in the right age it'll make PERFECT sense, but please - use your best judgment, as always.
