PreS-Gr 1- Little Rabbit likes to say "moo," because rabbits don't have a big noise. The little creature also likes to say "baa," "oink," "hee-haw," and "quack," and gets the other young farm animals to join the refrain until a surprise ending reveals the bunny's favorite sound. The illustrations are large, uncluttered, simple, and bold, made of black lines and computer air-brushed color. While Little Rabbit is not as cute as Allen's Baby Owl in I'm Not Cute! (Boxer, 2005), its facial expressions create an endearing character. With its large print and natural repetition, this cumulative tale will be useful for building early literacy skills. Pair it with Denise Fleming's The Cow Who Clucked (Holt, 2006) and Jules Feiffer's Bark, George (HarperCollins, 1999) for a rousing farmyard group session featuring animals that have the wrong voice.-Angela J.

We read this book to our infant. The illustrations hold his interest, and the animal sounds that we make are fun for him too. It is short enough that he doesn't get bored and look for something else to do.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
