Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Little Rabbit is not happy. He wants to be different, to have the attributes of another animal. He envies the bushy tail of the squirrel, the bristles of the porcupine, the red flippers of the duck. Old Mr. Groundhog tells him that if he goes to the wishing pond, looks at himself in the water, turns around three times and makes a wish, it will come true. And so, Little Rabbit meets a cardinal at the pond and red wings grow from his back. He returns home where his mother will not admit him, as she does not recognize him. Little Rabbit returns to the pond, undoes what he'd done and returns home, having learned a lesson. This is didactic and frightening book for young children. 2001 (orig. 1931), Grosset & Dunlap, $3.49. Ages 3 to 5. Reviewer: Candace Deisley

An amusing tale of a young rabbit who thinks that having red wings like a bird would be the best and most wonderful thing to have. He finds out that being yourself is the best thing. A wonderful story to share with your young child about accepting yourself the way you are.
