Kindergarten-Grade 1-Hopscotch hates to have his ears cleaned. To avoid it, the little rabbit covers his head with a saucepan, upside-down pants, and oven mitts-and, on one occasion, just runs away. Some parents may squirm at the way his mom begs and even bribes her child; they may also blink at how easily the youngster comes around as he follows his older cousin's example and eventually performs the task himself. Although the text is sometimes wordy, it lends itself well to reading aloud, with plenty of potential (including silly song lyrics) for hamming it up. Rankin's acrylic inks and paints have a watercolor gentleness combined with concentrated tints. The characters are funny, adorable, and expressive. Children can look at the pictures over and over and keep finding more enchanting details. A good book for sharing, with a childlike protagonist and a satisfying ending.-Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY

PreS-K. Many little children will see themselves in this bunny who doesn't like to wash his ears. And why should he? The soap makes him sneeze, and his ears drip. To his mother's dismay, Hopscotch comes up with creative ways to cover his ears while in the tub--among them, boxer shorts on his head. Then Hopscotch's big-boy cousin, Bobtail, visits, and a clear case of hero worship is born. When Hopscotch sees Bobtail happily washing his ears, he gets the idea: this is what big bunnies do. Now ear washing doesn't seem to be such an odious task. Everything works well here. The light, bright, oversize watercolors are just right for group viewing, and they features a perfectly darling young bunny with cuddly stuffed-animal appeal. The text is short, good for the age group, but the message comes through clearly. Clever parents will see that the solution offered here will work for problems other than dirty ears. Ilene Cooper

"Rabbit Ears" is a story of learning and repsonsibility. And Hopscotch learns that learning to do grown-up things comes with privileges too. Not that he's ready to leave everything behind --- he still needs his stuffed toy rabbit --- Rabbity.
The illustrations in this book are unusual but pleasing. A good, maybe slightly off-beat choice for when it comes to woes at bathtime.
