PreS-Gr 2-Little Rabbit is thrilled that his family is taking him to "Rabbit World" for his birthday, for he has always wanted to go there and it's a sure sign that "I'm a big rabbit now." Despite his parents' admonitions to stay close, he is off and running, always out in front with his big red balloon, and it's all his mother can do to keep him in sight. Finally, after becoming bored watching his older siblings ride the Big Hopper roller coaster that he's too small for, he wanders off to the bouncy castle and is having fun until he realizes that his mother is nowhere in sight. Suddenly, feeling "as small as he really was," he tries to find her. He's on the verge of panic, when the balloon helps to reunite them, and the whole family celebrates with a big birthday picnic, complete with cake. Little Rabbit, with his tiny blue suit and big red balloon, is an endearing figure who will win the sympathy of many young listeners who feel really big one minute and small the next. This cautionary tale has a deft and light touch, with soft, watercolor illustrations that portray a cozy rabbit home; an inviting theme park; and a small, but intrepid, protagonist.-Jane Marino, Scarsdale Public Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

Little Rabbit wakes up on his birthday full of big-bunny confidence. He's a year older now, and he's ready to take on the world. Rabbit World, that is-as his whole family sets out on a special expedition to the bunny-themed amusement park. Depicted by Horse (The Last Gold Diggers) with an eye for both detail and humor, the park boasts a lettuce patch, complete with scarecrow, next to the carrot-shaped speedboats and the Big Hopper roller-coaster. Bursting with excitement, Little Rabbit races on ahead, assuring his mother, "But it's my birthday and I'm a big rabbit now... I won't get lost." Of course he does, but Little Rabbit's separation from his family is fairly brief. Instead of imparting a stern safety lesson, the book perfectly captures the wonder and exuberance of a child on the cusp between toddler and big kid, taking first steps toward independence ("He suddenly felt as small as he really was"). Horse's visual depiction of Little Rabbit is likewise dead-on. Adorable in a pair of baby blue pajamas with a matching ear-shaped cap, this "awww"-inspiring bunny bounces merrily across the pages, trailed by his special red birthday balloon. The gentle lesson-that even "big" boys and girls can get separated from their parents-ends on an uplifting note, with a "great big hug," a message both grownups and kids will take to heart. Ages 2-6.
