It didn’t take but a few pages before I realized that I would not like this book.
Instead, I THOROUGHLY LOVE IT!!!!
Christina’s writing style is compelling, inspiring and embracing…as she reminds us to never give up. She manages to tap into the sentiments that many of us have felt or will feel at some point in our lives…perhaps some despair, doubt, loss of hope, lack of desire or lack of belief. And without lecturing, she finds a way to feed encouragement to the reader.
“Bunny’s” message doesn’t apply just to career, by the way. Anyone who has experienced disappointment or perceived failure in a relationship, athletic endeavor or any form of sustained, difficult, committed effort, will enjoy this book.
In my work as a management consultant and executive coach….and as an endurance swimmer who knows severe fatigue, I interact with people each day who need a message like Bunny’s and I’m going to tell them about this book.
How fitting to discover Bunny on Super Bowl Sunday, when in just a few hours, one team will make history and the other will go home in need of “a message”.
We haven’t heard the last of Bunny.
Thank you Tina.
Loved this book. Bunny told me that job searching sucks. But she also told me to chill out. Relax. Have a carrot and remember when you were just a kid. The world wasn’t any less complicated, but you didn’t have any worries and everything worked out.
This book is great, because it delivers a mature, meaningful message with simple story telling. Stories that talk about the complexities of the real world through the innocence of childhood themes always get me. Couple pages into the bunny book and I was sold. And you will be too!

From childhood all the way to business school, I was lucky enough to always know where I was headed before I had to leave my previous school / job / adventure. I took this sense of security for granted until May this year, when I found myself in Bunny’s shoes…done with school, but with no next steps lined up. It was an emotional rollercoaster – I was happy for my friends who were finding jobs, scared/worried/sad for myself, frustrated by the economy – exactly the situation Tina has captured in You Can Do It, Bunny!
Everybody’s story is different, but we can all relate to the feelings and the message found in this story. Jobhunting (and life in general) doesn’t follow a formula; i.e., there will be times when you do everything “right” and still hit more walls than doors. The important thing is to keep moving forward, drawing strength from the people and activities that make you happy.
This book is a heartwarming way to lift your spirits in the face of adversity, let your friends know that you’re there for them, or help kids understand what their parents or siblings might be going through. If you’ve been (or known) a Bunny at any time in your life, it will definitely strike a chord.
I really enjoy the read and all the cute animals even it is hard to tell they are bunnies. This story reminds me my job searching last summer together with some of my fellow school friends. That three months were full of sad farewells and long goodbyes, some people worried about their future, some disappear happily from our lives for good. Sometimes we sat down on the patio and wondered why we would put ourselves in this voluntary unemployment situation. Soon summer crossing and looking back, I think we’ve done alright. Those who have great endowment can free from sneer and regrets only if they had tried their best, just like the Bunny.
This book will be a wonderful gift for anyone who is frustrated by the current job market. Children whose parents are jobless would find this helpful. It really does all work out in the end! The real inspiration is the behind-the-scenes story of a smart, dear young lady who turned her own job hunting disappointment into this beautiful product. Way to go, Tina!
I showed this book and read it to a group of seventh graders and they loved it! People of all ages can connect with the message in this book.
As someone who is currently going through the terrible unemployment phase, this was definitely the medicine I needed. My very Indian parents grew up believing that you go to school, and then you immediately get a job and you’re done, so when I lost my job last year and couldn’t find a new one immediately, they started to panic. I staved off their concern mainly because I knew this was a tough economy and I wasn’t the only one going through it, but sometimes you need other things to keep you positive. I’m glad that I now know this book exists to serve as the perfect pick-me-up whenever I feel down 🙂
This is such a motivational book for anyone who was thrilled to graduate from a great college but was not so thrilled to realize that finding a career was not so easy in this economy. I would love to see this turn into a whole series of Bunny books chronicling her career adventures!
I enjoyed this book in the same way that I enjoyed Up – I felt connected to it on many levels. The 7 year old inside me and the 30 year old that is me both liked it, for very different reasons. Looking for a job and not succeeding is one of the harder things to have to go through in life. This book does a simple yet thorough job of describing that anxiety.
