Cute, cute, cute story. I got it for my PreK students. We do a study on shadows each year and they really liked this story. Rabbit makes a betbwith woodchuck that he can lose his shadow. Rabbit tries and tries to lose his shadow. He and his friends get very creative trying different ways to get rid of his shadow. In the end he realizes though that he really does not want to lose his shadow because he likes to play with it. We really enjoyed this story and it has fun, colorful illustrations.

I can't wait to use this book to introduce shadows during my day/night kindergarten unit. The story is cute and kindergarten students can connect with the characters. I will have students lay on black paper and trace friends "shadows". Fun!

Format: Paperback
This is a book that someone gave me as a child, and I read it over and over again, and returned to it in teenage years because it was such a favorite of mine. The Story is about a boastful rabbi who claims he can do anything, his friend challenges him that he can't, and they make a bet, and his friend says that the rabbit can't out run his shadow. The rabbit tries everything he can, going to dangerous extremes to win this bet, and at the end of the day has to be rescued by his friend, after the rescue he looks down and sees that his shadow is gone (the sun has set), and suddenly realized that he liked having his shadow with him, and that he hadn't really wanted to win the bet at the loss of his shadow. It's a beautiful telling that wraps you up in rabbit's emotions, and at the end of the story, you feel like you've learned his life lesson with him. It definitely made me appreciate my own shadow.

This is a great, fun fictional story to help teach about shadows. It was a fun way to start conversation in my K class about what causes a shadow and how to make one "disappear."
