Reviews

A JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD SELECTION [...] the uncomplicated text and the humorous art combine to create a story appealing to all. [...] A sweetly balanced affirmation of the child's right to space. --Kirkus Reviews [...] affectionately explores the way children handle seesawing emotions and competing desires for privacy and companionship. --Publisher's Weekly [Rebecca Crane's] warm palette and round, expressive bunny characters flop pleasantly around the pages, and almost every scene is crowded with rabbits engaging in a wide variety of activities. Little ones who crave privacy will relate to Jack's plight, and his ultimate realization that company can be nice, too, is a lovely lesson. --Booklist A particularly great read for children welcoming a new sibling, or starting school or nursery, Rebecca Crane's colourful illustrations have plain backgrounds, so can easily feel relevant to a child's own scenario. [...] fun and thoughtful [...] --The Guardian Tackling the traditional out and back quest for personal identity in a relatable, tangible and enjoyable representation, Goodhart's and Crane's My Very Own Space is a super-engaging and thoughtful book, just fine for a quick and casual read, but better for a lingering one. --New York Journal of Books The perfect book for everyone that sometimes needs a little quiet and their own space. --Jesica DeHart, The Wandering Bookseller What a little rabbit wants a space all his own, he creates a very big circle around himself to keep everyone out. Does it work? Does this make rabbit happy? With great text and illustrations this will be a fun book to read at storytime. --Nanci Booher, Multnomah County Library
