    1. Chloe is a sweet little bunny who lives in a burrow at a museum in Brooklyn. She visits her cousins, brothers and sisters in their nearby burrows once a month. When she goes to visit, no bunnies are found. Chloe asks other animals if they’ve seen any of her kind. Rat and the cardinals have not. Professor Pigeon stated that the bunnies might be extinct like some of the other animals in the museum. When Chloe visited raccoon he simply thought they left for greener grasses. While eating some rose [...]


    2. This book is more than it seems, especially give the talent of award-winning author Zetta Elliott. Worthy of discussion in adult forums, this beautifully illustrated, elegant allegory guides us in reflecting on social dislocation and the impact of disappearing or moving groups and the impact of this loss. Following the search of little rabbit, readers encounter multiple bystanders and friends along the way, symbols we can consider as we live our lives in the ebb and flow of the universe.


    3. Adorable illustrations, but so sad. Chloe is the last bunny in Brooklyn. A human points out to her that all the other bunnies in Brooklyn have been exterminated as pests or died of a plague, fortunately for her sanity Chloe doesn't know what that means! Also, Chloe can't ask her mom to explain it to her, unlike the child reader who has a harsh life lesson to learn here. But the good news is that the tragic survivor bunny provides a lifetime happy memory for a boy who sees her! Hooray!


    4. With the over development of Brooklyn, I really related to the Last Bunny in Brooklyn. I'm sure it will give children a frame of reference as their friends and neighbors are displaced.
