Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K—Taylor is overcome with sadness when an impressive block construction crashes to the ground, and none of his animal friends' suggestions help. Each creature proposes an outlet: Chicken wants to talk about it, Bear surmises that Taylor is angry and offers to "shout about it," Hyena suggests laughing, and so on. Taylor doesn't feel like doing any of those things and remains in a funk. But when Rabbit cuddles in close and listens, the child finally lets loose. With sadness finally dispelled, Taylor can now envision beginning again to build something "amazing." The cartoon illustrations, digitally rendered with thick black outlines, depict a curly-haired moppet in striped pajamas. The animals appear in several vignettes as they submit their ideas. Taylor builds with rapt concentration, proudly admires the work, gasps in horror at its destruction, and curls up in sadness before expressing bottled up feelings. The only background color is the deep purple against which a flock of black birds swoops down and scatters the blocks and the background against Taylor's real and imagined structures. VERDICT In addition to validating feelings of anger and disappointment, this book is a fine vehicle for group discussion of ways to help others deal with these emotions. Sometimes just listening is best of all.—Marianne Saccardi, Children's Literature Consultant, Cambridge, MA

5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite Book of Daughter
By Yogue7 on September 27, 2022
This hardcover book was a replacement for a paperback version of the same book. The sturdier cover helps with all the handling it gets from my little one. Her favorite animal is the rabbit and therefore this is her favorite book. She enjoys the story and often request that I read this one to her. I like the artwork and message behind the story. This is a book that I hope she passes down to her kids.
