This information and other facts make reading this book fun. The colorful, close up pictures of the rabbits will make the reader want to cuddle them! This book is plainly written for the young reader to understand. There is a glossary in the back to help with terms that might be difficult. Also included in the book is a web site to go to for further information. This book would be useful in the classroom when talking about animals in stories or science.
