Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara B. Disckind
In this picture book, Hopper, a little hare with one blue-tipped ear, learns about hare life from his mother. Together they share adventures in their search for food during a winter's day. They meet other creatures in the cold snowy woods and successfully escape a swooping falcon's sharp talons. The large, beautifully colored watercolors fill the pages with soft greens, blues and purples, evoking images of caring, security and warmth.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The arctic hare learns a lesson about survival in this board book adaptation of the picture book. The soft watercolors work well in the smaller format, but the text and the realities of avoiding predators may be too sophisticated for the board book set.
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-K--Hopper is a tiny white hare with one blue-tipped ear. He is tired of winter, ice and snow, cold feet, and nothing but bark to eat, but his mother lovingly reassures him that the joys of spring will return. This quiet picture book has very little in the way of plot, but features a wealth of large, misty watercolors in lucious pastel shades that are as soft and cuddly as a child's favorite blanket. Hopper conveys the same all-encompassing sense of security and warmth as does that classic of the nursery by Margaret W. Brown, The Runaway Bunny (HarperCollins, 1972), and will be appreciated by the same audience. --Joan McGrath, Education Centre Library, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
