Twitchy is confused when he learns that he is a rabbit and his parents are a cow and a horse. Since they are his family, he needs to look more like them.
The story effectively introduces how a family works, without getting technical or detailed about adoption. The narrative doesn't go overboard, and the illustrations are great (even offering a chuckle or two).
S/He liked Twitchy and asked to read it several times. The farm setting made it attractive to our animal lover.
This is a sweet story that helps introduce the idea that we are each our own person, and we don't have to "look like" someone else to share love.
This is a story about adoption.
Although billed as a book about adoption, this is also a story about the importance of being yourself and not trying model yourself after others.
