From School Library Journal

PreS-A quiet gem of a picture book about a small bunny with a big imagination. "When he hopped through the high grass, he wondered what it would be like to be green." Each burst of curiosity is followed by a spread of envisioning. For example, when he wonders what it would be like to be tall as a fir tree, readers are treated to a depiction of a huge rabbit leaning on the upper boughs of a hemlock, communing with the birds. In the tradition of Eric Carle's The Mixed-Up Chameleon (Crowell, 1975) and Margaret Wise Brown's The Runaway Bunny (HarperCollins, 1942), Little White Rabbit is perfect for preschoolers. The colored pencil and acrylic illustrations in cheery springtime pastels have fuzzy textures and broad outlines that are enormously appealing. Henkes often manages to combine the static and kinetic so that his protagonist seems frozen in mid-leap. And just when you think this little rabbit has settled in for the night with his loving family, that lively curiosity reappears, ready to begin another adventure.-Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY (c) Copyright 2010.

Format: Hardcover
I will admit straight off that I am a huge fan of this author/illustrator. As a story time leader, I eagerly look forward to each of his new picture books, secure in the knowledge that it will be perfectly in tune with the imaginations of my preschool and toddler audiences. I know that they won't be too long, and that the author's spare text will perfectly complement illustrations that are simple and well defined. This author has mastered the art of "less is more" in picture books and still manages to convey messages that are full of spirit, imagination and whimsy. Little White Rabbit does not disappoint. It feeds the imagination and celebrates curiosity. This is a wonderful selection for any group of toddlers or young preschoolers. The color scheme evokes Spring and Easter but this is a book that can be read year round. It's going into my own story time collection, right next to Birds, Old Bear, A Good Day, and My Garden. Another stellar effort not to be missed. Recommended.

Little white rabbit hops along and wonders what it would be like to be different. What would it be like to be green or tall or like a stone or like butterflies? When frightened by a cat, he hops as fast as he can, back to home, back to his mother rabbit who loves him. This cozy picture book is perfect for older infants and young children ages 2-5.

Fuel your child's life with imagination: walk in the snow and photograph your footprints, make a snow angel worth photographing, and then walk briskly to the neighborhood library and find this appealing book.

Kevin Henkes is said to have written and illustrated his first book, All Alone, while in high school; that's quite an accomplishment. His parents fostered his love for reading, illustrating, and imagining by visiting the library. From there, his creativity took wing and in the latest book, published in January 2011, he introduces Little White Rabbit who wonders of being bigger, bigger than life, only to realize that wondering is great, within limits. Little White Rabbit meets a life-size cat and reconsiders what he wishes for.

I am all for giving your child wings for life's adventures. This book, with its colored pencil and acrylic illustrations will both allow your child to adventure into the story, its meaning and consequences, and possibly, illustrating a story on her own.

Once the little rabbit is exhausted from his wonderings, he heads home to find his Mother's arms ready to greet him. Hopefully, acquainting your child with books like this, she or he, too, will run into your arms.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was a darling book. Deals with imagining what being something else is like including being green, being tall, flying, sitting still like a rock, etc. Could have kids interact with each page and hold still and be silent like a rock or to reach up to be as tall and stomp around like a giant. Could also read the book quietly and have students close eyes and imagine what each is like. Images large enough for a small group to read together. Could read to boy or girl especially during spring or Easter time. The flying page is the only image that stood out as very girly... due to the flock of butterflies, but the image was SO WONDERFUL that i don't think young boys would mind.

The only thing i did not like was the part about the cat and then running home. I think there could have been a far cuter way to get the bunny back home... perhaps thinking of what it would be liked to be ? and then the bunny realizing they did not have to imagine this... and ran off home to mom and bed.

The cat thing just ruined the flow of the book for me, but overall I enjoyed the book very much.

My grandson is 8 months old. I wanted to purchase an Easter/Spring book for him and took my chances with ordering "Little White Rabbit" unseen.
Each colored page is exceptionally illustrated and beautiful. So beautiful that you might be tempted to frame the pages! There is not too much text, so this is ideal for a baby.
You won't be disappointed with "Little White Rabbit."

In Little White Rabbit's world, everything is new and anything is possible. Besides being a brilliant work of art, this book is a wonderful celebration of the imagination. The lovely message this book conveys is that the possibilities are limitless! After hopping through high grass, Little White Rabbit looks around and wonders what it would be like to be the color green. When he sees a pack of butterflies float by, he wonders what it would be like to fly through the air. Henke answers each of these speculations with a gorgeous two page spread of Rabbit doing each of these things. I promise that you won't get through the book without wanting to stop and stare at these amazing paintings. When Rabbit sees a cat, he decides he is done wondering about things and heads home where he doesn't have to puzzle over who loves him. What a cozy, delicious story to share with your little one.

Here is a lovely addition to the collection of simple, toddler books by Henkes. The colored pencil and acrylic paint illustrations use soft pastel tones and bold green lines, much like the style of Old Bear, A Good Day and My Garden. The end papers are decorated with what look like paintings of willow leaves. The eponymous hero of the story hops along, wondering about all the things that he sees. The story alternates between a page with a sentence or two of text paired with a picture of Little White Rabbit in his natural habitat, and wordless double-page spreads where we see the results of his imaginings. I loved the spread of Little White Rabbit imagining being a rock. Split in four-parts we see the bunny (now a cozy little statue) sitting perfectly still in sun, rain, during sunset and at night. I also appreciated that when we see Little White Rabbit imagining he can fly, he doesn't grow wings, instead, he gains lift-off by frantically flapping his ears and wiggling his tail, amidst a sky of butterflies. Large, easy to see illustrations make this book a natural for storytime, but the nature of all the things that Little White Rabbit imagines would also make this book great for sparking one-on-one conversations with preschoolers.
