(Dec. 27-Jan. 8) Can’t get eknuffle?
If you’ve never seen a Knuffle Bunny you probably don’t spend a lot of time in the children’s section at your local book store. Mo Willem’s popular picture book Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale is mostly the tale of Trixie, who loses her favorite stuffed animal at the laundromat. She eventually rescues the rabbit, learning a lot about family, friends, baby steps and dancing laundry along the way. The Cautionary Musical version of Knuffle Bunny is staged through January 8th at The Kennedy Center.
