Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Leo Rabbit tells of his efforts to show Lisa Rabbit that she is his best friend. When he brings her the first leaf of autumn, she finds it beautiful, but it is soon blown away. He tries to carry the most delicate snowflake of winter to her, but it melts in his hand. When spring arrives, he finds the most radiant butterfly, but it flies away, so Leo searches everywhere for the perfect gift, but returns with nothing. All Lisa really wants, however, is “to hold the hand of my best friend.” The hand-printed, simple text is a perfect match for the very simple black line drawings of the appealing bunny pair in this hand-size book. Red-tipped noses and a red leaf and balloon add accents to these otherwise unembellished images and their romantic tale. The sparseness leaves room for the reader to bring personal experiences to flesh out the story. The lesson on friendship is clear and universal. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
