Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 1

Matthew's parents are taking him camping for the first time. It will also be a new experience for his stuffed bunny, Tall Rabbit, who has lots of concerns. Mom and Dad patiently answer all of his questions, voiced by Matthew, as they pack the car, drive to the lake, and set up their tent. Although the adventure of sleeping in the woods can be scary, watching the fireflies glimmer like little night-lights and snuggling in the tent with Tall Rabbit and the family dog put Matthew at ease. The subtle expressions on Tall Rabbit's face mirror Matthew's feelings. The text is rather earnest and the dog's antics supply the only humor in the story. An additional purchase for first-time campers who may have similar worries.-Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT

    I loved this warm-hearted book. The story is so sweet and the illustrations are beautiful. Young children and parents will connect with Matthew and his well-loved tall rabbit.
