Editorial Reviews


STARRED REVIEW PreS-Gr 1 Little Rabbit continues to charm children in this warm and fuzzy tale. When the Christmas Rabbit brings the red sled he s longed for (the one that goes Whoosh! ), the small animal refuses to let anyone else play with it. Instead he pulls it far up a hill, much too far, so that when he whooshes down again he crashes and the sled breaks. It takes his friends to fix both the sled and his attitude, and everything ends happily. The joy of this book is in its delightful visual and textual details. Simple and satisfying pen-and-ink and watercolor artwork draws the eye to Little Rabbit s facial expressions, which include childish wonderment, frustration, and bravado. An enchanting holiday treat for all collections. Teri Markson, Los Angeles Public Library --School Library Journal

Exceptionally nuanced illustrations in Horse's signature pen-and-ink and watercolors of an irresistible animal cast turn an obvious lesson about the importance of sharing into an appetizing holiday story. Making his final appearance in the late author/artist's picture book series, Little Rabbit wakes up on Christmas with a child's single-minded interest in obtaining a particular red sled. Horse conveys a whole world of emotion by just tilting the few curves that delineate Little Rabbit's face. Ages 2-6. (Sept.) --Publishers Weekly

In the fourth picture book of the series that began with Little Rabbit Lost (2002), the story begins on Christmas Eve, with Little Rabbit longing for a red sled. He receives the sled on Christmas morning and goes out to play with his friends. Unwilling to share his present, he goes off sledding alone, only to break the sled and end up stuck in a snow drift. His forgiving friends come to the rescue, first digging him out, then repairing and repainting the sled. Little Rabbit not only learns his lesson but states it in the last line: Christmas is good, Papa, but sharing it with friends is even better. The very accessible artwork provides appealing settings, both inside the rabbits cozy burrow and in the snowy woods outside their home. Brightened with watercolor washes, the ink drawings create expressive characters whose emotions are easy to read. In Little Rabbit, preschoolers will find an everybunny: not quite civilized and sometimes a bit bratty but basically decent and at least wanting to be good. --Booklist --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

"That night, Mama tucked Little Rabbit into bed and read him a story. She told Little Rabit that if he was good, the Christmas Rabbit would leave some lovely presents in the stocking at the end of his bed." -- From the book

Little Rabbit wands a red sled...badly. When it doesn't appear in his stocking, he throws a tantrum. His parents calmly point out the window (after the their child freaks out).

Little Rabbit wants to play with his sled...by himself. So he denies sled rides to Molly Mouse, Benjamin and Rachel. After whooshing down a steep hill, by himself, he crashes. The sled is broken. Worse, he's lost...and stuck in a snowdrift.

His friends find him, and Benjamin fixes the sled with his new toolbox and Rachel paint it like new with her new paints. A grateful Little Rabbit now allows them to ride his sled, and they have lots of fun.

I lvoe the detailed illustrations in Little Rabbit's Christmas; they remind me of the old fashioned Winnie the Pooh books. The cover and pages are thick, lush--beautiful to hold and to read.

I'm a bit disturbed, though, about the behavior of the parents and the (implicit) message of the story: if you are "selfish" (that is, don't feel like sharing), then disaster will result.

My son loved the book--read it twice--and it does deliver an upbeat message about sharing and friendship. After all, they had a wonderful party around the lighted Christmas tree and Little Rabbit had the time of his life with his friends. Who can argue with that?

By Lisa Barker on December 18, 2010
Format: Paperback
Little Rabbit navigates all the particular emotions a little one has before and during the big day-Christmas. Will he get what he asks for? Will it be all he dreamed? And then, when he receives the big gift, up surface all those hard to handle feelings about sharing a new toy. In the end, Little Rabbit learns that "Christmas is good, but sharing it with friends is much better." Well done. Biblio Reads Children's Book Review
