Review for Out of a Jar

Review for Out of a Jar

Out of a Jar Deborah Marcero, Picture Book, Emotions, Bunny, Sunset, Trees, Bottles, Picture BookA book about emotions, they can be scary, but should you put them in a jar… or not?

I really enjoyed the first book in the series, in which a bunny puts all sorts of gorgeous moments in jars and finds a friend/lover along the way! So I just had to get this one when I spotted it in the library. I had to see what would happen if you bottle emotions up, literally. Because we all know what happens when you do it in your mind, at one point, BOOM.

In this book we meet a bunny who finds out that he can put his emotions in bottles/jars/anything of glass really, and just hide them. Yep. Sounds like a plan right? I mean, I was definitely sold on the idea, bottling things up in my mind is fun, but if I can truly bottle them? Come on through. Haha. Especially as of late. But we can see that as each emotion gets throw into the jar and into the dark closet that things are changing. We see our bunny get less and less colourful. More a zombie rather than someone alive. We see cracks appear. I felt for him and wanted to give him so many hugs. I could fully understand him though, that he wanted to lock it all up. Again. I feel the same way many times. And our bunny has a lot of things happening to him.

The ending, well not unexpected, but I was proud of how our bunny handled it.

Oh, and dear bunny? Find a better friend. This one is terrible. At least if it is the same one who is doing all the bad things all the time.

The illustrations were absolutely stunning once again!

All in all, this was a gorgeous book about emotions, bottling them up, and more. I could fully relate to this bunny~
