Little Kid Reaction

S/He took to the book immediately, and it was a regular request for about two weeks. It's not part of the every-day request list, but it is still there.

Parent Reaction

Little Rabbit's mishaps are predictable, but the story is pleasant, and there's a happy ending! We expect it will be very popular once s/he starts reading to her/himself.

It's a good story for young readers, and is designed to help children with their reading.
Educational Themes:

Themes in this book can be approached on several levels: be wary of strangers offering help, don't take from others (even if it’s a good cause), Mothers love you for who you are, not what you give them.
