The national bestseller about a curious rabbit is now available in a sturdy board book edition, just right for little hands, Easter baskets, and welcoming spring. Caldecott Medalist and New York Times‒bestselling author Kevin Henkes’s glorious story stars a rambunctious and adventurous little white rabbit who discovers, in the end, that a mother’s love is constant and true. Little white rabbit hops along, exploring and wondering. What would it be like to be as tall as a tree? Or as still as a rock? Or green, like the bright spring world around him? It’s wonderful to wonder about many things and exciting to explore the world—but true happiness is knowing where you belong and who loves you best of all. Bright greens, yellows, pinks, and purples—the welcome colors of spring—dance across the pages of this pitch-perfect and critically acclaimed book for very young children. This board book by award-winning author Kevin Henkes is a wonderful choice for Easter baskets, as a gift for a new baby, for reading before bedtime, or for sharing anytime.
This is a sweet book for a toddler read aloud. In this gentle story, told in boldly outlined pastels, the little rabbit imagines what it would be like to be green and tall and stationary, even to fly. It provides early opportunities to explore empathy, curiosity, and imagination.
