Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–Rabbit has a well-scripted, predictable life until Froggie knocks on his door one night. His guest loves to listen to this big blue rabbit with oversized ears read a story and likes it even more when he has prepared himself a snack or gotten cozy–night after night. Polite Rabbit refrains from refusing entry until Froggie shows up with his entire family. As he settles himself down to read alone, however, he realizes that he misses Froggie and invites the whole crew in. The humorous illustrations create empathy for Rabbit but also for Froggie, who is genuinely delighted to listen to a story. The varied facial expressions lend credence to the adage "A picture is worth a thousand words." The simple text may say "but before he could begin, there was that knock-knockety-knocking again!" but the horror on Rabbit's face is priceless. A fun story that celebrates reading and standing up for oneself.–Linda M. Kenton, San Rafael Public Library, CA

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. Rabbit settles in his cozy wing chair by the fire and starts to read a book until he is interrupted by Froggie, who invites himself in and asks to hear the story. On successive nights, Froggie shows up again, makes himself snacks, and plunks down on a pile of pillows to listen to more reading aloud. Then Froggie brings his huge family to the evening storytime, and Rabbit has had enough: "Too many frogs! Too much fuss!" He tells the Frog clan to leave, but guilt catches up with him, and he invites the family back. The humorous, repetitive text is well matched by the funny, expressive illustrations. Persnickety Rabbit is appropriately anxious and irritable, while Froggie and his family exude bug-eyed cheerfulness. A good choice for storytimes. Todd Morning

Format: Hardcover
This is a great little book and an absolute joy to read. I have found that this one is ideal to read aloud to the class. The story is funny and the illustrations are bright and eye catching. This is a story of a rabbit who likes to read and read alone but us then joined by a frog who likes to listen and then by another and another and another......ergo, too many frogs. The kids get a kick out of the book (I have to admit I do too). I have noted this one is also quite frequently picked by the kids to read by themselves. Highly recommend this one for your reading library.

I picked this book up at the library a few days ago and read it to my two children ages 2 and 5 last night. My 5 year old daughter laughed so hard that she almost fell off the couch. I don't recall that she has ever laughed so hard at a book in all her young years. The illustrations are great and it was great fun having the kids guess how the characters (primarily the rabbit) were feeling before reading the words on the pages. I don't see how you could not love this book. I will be buying a copy of this one to keep when we turn the library copy back in.

When I got this book my son who is 6 and in kindergarten was excited about the book. He said they had read it at school. He told me the story before I read it to him which is good because some books he doesn't remember. Its cute, simple and he can read some but not all of it. Its got a nice message about friends.

This book is very cute and my child has loved since she got it when she was 2. We originally picked it up at the library and just had to have it. It's fun to come up with some cute voices to read along. Over a year later, and we are still reading the story.

Format: Hardcover
I purchased this book a few years ago and the children completely worn out our copy! They love to hear this story again and again, and they still laugh at it. My three year old, in particular, (who wasn't even born when I bought it) always picks this out of the bookcase. It flows great when read outloud so I don't mind reading it again and again! Which is important to me because I find myself hiding some books that don't sound nice outloud. my seven year old also picks this out to read to himself. But really, I love it most for family reading time so we can all enjoy it together.
