I agree with the other reviewers that this is a nice story with cute illustrations. My only caveat is that another theme also comes out of this story, namely to be suspicious or fear others whose appearances or behavior is considered different or other from one's own. I was disturbed that the bunny's mother couldn't recognize him and ultimately rejected him, sending him into the cold night. The bushy-tailed squirrel slams his door shut on the bunny in fear. Only when the bunny gives up his wings do the other characters' compassion appear in accepting him. While the value of appreciating one's own self "as is" is important, I'm not sure that the ensuing lesson of fearing others when they are different is a good lesson to be picked up by children.

I am a high school student and I remember my mom reading a lot to me when I was a child. This book, "The Little Rabbit Who Wanted Red Wings" is/was one of my all time favorites. The illustrations (in the edition that I own) are wonderful and I would recommend it to any parent. I will deffinately read it to my children someday. The reason I'm writing this is because I'm reading it for my drama class tomorrow. I'm sure everyone, even the high school students, will enjoy this book.

Be careful what you wish for, and be careful reading too much into a children's book. This book is a favorite of mine from my 1960's childhood. I read it to my own daughter and the message has always been to accept who you are. I am purchasing a new copy for my soon-to-be-born great niece and I look forward to reading it to her. I also teach high school creative writing and my students write children's books. I use this book in class and the kids have overwhelmingly loved it.

Shades of Victorian children's books, the little white rabbit -- much more adorable in the original hardback, with lovely red wings, is cast out into the cold and rejected by all, even his own mother! I just came across an old copy in a batch of donated books, and I'm sending it to my brother. He just turned 60 and will make him feel young, vulnerable, and full of terror, just like in the old days when we read it together.

I remember checking out this book over and over again at my schools library. I remember the red cover. And just started one day looking for it online and found it here. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. It has a good life lesson story for people young and old. :)

Children love this book. The little rabbit discovers that what you wish for does not always turn out like you think it will. I used this story as a spring board to get my primary students to create their own wishing stories.

I didn't realize the illustrator was different than the old copy I had once owned and the bunnies in this book are very unappealing looking. Kind of scary actually!
