    Review

    Eric Rohmann won the Caldecott Medal in 2003 for My Friend Rabbit. He also won Caldecott Honor in 1995 for Time Flies. He is a painter, printmaker, and bookmaker. He holds degrees in fine arts from Arizona State University and Illinois State University. He lives in the Chicago area. Mouse and his best friend Rabbit were playing with Mouse¿s airplane. Whatever Rabbit does, and wherever Rabbit goes, trouble seems to follow. Mouse¿s plane got stuck in a tree, and Rabbit told Mouse not to worry, because he had an idea. Rabbit decided to incorporate some of the other animals to help, but Rabbit¿s idea only brings on bigger trouble.

    My Friend Rabbit

    This book has a good meaning behind it. It shows that a good friend is always there for you. They may not have the best plan, but they'll have one. 'My friend Rabbit means well...but...trouble follows'. The rabbit always tries to make things better but sometimes he don't. Every time they get in a mess the mouse just says, 'But Rabbit means well and he is my friend'.

    Experience the trouble for yourself

    Eric Rochmann wrote and illustrated this funny little adventure between two interesting little friends. In the book we meet a little mouse with a friend named Rabbit who, 'means well, but whatever he does, wherever he goes, trouble follows.' Our trouble starts when Rabbit gets Mouse's little airplane stuck in a high up branch. He immediatley has a plan on how to save the day, but as our story warns us, trouble follows. This fun adventure will make you wonder about what that little rabbit is doing, and then make you giggle when you see what is up his sleeve. Eric Rohmann lives in Chicago and is a painter, printmaker, and fine bookmaker. Rohmann, Eric. 'My Friend Rabbit'.Brookfield:Roaring Book Press, 2002. Reading Level: 2.1

    My Friend Rabbit

    My Friend Rabbit was a wonderful comical story. I enjoyed every picture. Each page was filled with color. This book deserved the Caldecott Medal. The pictures were marvelous. The mouse and the rabbit reminded me of me and my brother. Something would always happen and he would have a 'great' idea to fix it or solve the problem. But in the end more trouble came out of it. The book had very little text. I would beleive that this would be a K-1 reading level.

    Caldecott: My Friend Rabbit

    Is Rabbit a really good friend or a friend that causes trouble? This is a simple book about two friends, a rabbit and a mouse. Rabbit seems to cause trouble everywhere he goes even though he means well. Mouse gets his toy airplane stuck in a tree, and Rabbit comes to the rescue. ¿Not to worry, Mouse. I¿ve got an idea!¿ However, Rabbit¿s idea caused trouble. He still meant well. This Caldecott book is written and illustrated by Eric Rohmann. Eric was born in Illinois, and he grew up in a suburb of Chicago. He has created numerous jackets for books. The illustrations are vibrant and stunning. Rohmann, Eric. My Friend Rabbit. Connecticut: Roaring Book Press, 2002. Reading level: Ages 4-8

    Cooper's Review

    I liked the dark outline for the animals and the airplane. Rabbit expressed to Mouse about his idea on how to remove the airplane out of the tree. Rabbit¿s good intentions are difficult like pushing a rhinoceros or elephant and hippo to give him height to reach for an airplane stuck in a tree. He carries an elk, alligator, bear, squirrel, mouse and ducks. Mouse began to reach but slipped. This suggestion enabled the animals to fall. No matter where or whatever Rabbit does trouble follows. This is on first grade level. This story received the Caldecott Medal in 2003.

    great book

    Shawna Wyatt Book Review My Friend Rabbit Authored By: Eric Rohmann This is a book that does not have many words, but I think that is O.K. because children can look at the pictures and make-up their own stories by looking at the pictures. This would be a good book to use with lower elementary school children. This book is about a rabbit and a mouse who are best friends but bad luck follows the rabbit but the mouse does not care because rabbit is his friend. This is a book that teaches children about the value of friendship. Eric Rohman holds fine arts degree from Arizona State University and Illinois State University. He lives in the Chicago area.
