Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The paper-over-board Seven Little Rabbits by John Becker, illus. by Barbara Cooney (first published in 1973), features a countdown as it follows the title septet when they set out to visit "old friend toad." In the pleasingly repetitive text, one by one the rabbits grow too tired to complete the journey; readers catch a glimpse of the toad at one point, but much of the book takes place in a friendly mole's abode, where all seven bunnies wind up for a nap. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Seven little rabbits start down the road to visit old friend toad. When one says he is tired, they discover a hole built by mole. They go down and the little rabbit goes to bed in mole's underground den. The rest continue on their way but each in turn claims to be tired and they return to mole's den until all seven are tucked in bed. Along the way they have stopped to pick flowers and have had a picnic. Perceptive children will point out that four of them "walkin' down the road" almost get to toad's house. From the small size (8" x 6") to the jaunty rhyme and humorous captions, this is a delight for parents and children to share. In size, clothing, and their interests, these are seven distinct rabbits. The flower border around the rhyming text changes from page to page. It feels as if spring is bursting forth. Even when they are not reading the book, children and their parents will be chanting, "Seven little rabbits/ Walkin' down the road/ Walkin' down the road/ Seven little rabbits/ Walkin' down the road/ To call on old friend toad." It is the perfect size for an Easter basket, and it would also be a good title for a springtime storyhour.

    A family favorite!

    After reading this book with my daughter, this book has become a family favorite. I think she and I both have it memorized. I love the meter of the words -- it's almost a song for us.

    Simply a beautiful book!

    I enjoyed this book as a child and am so pleased to see that it is being re-published for new generations. The story is catchy and sweet (I actually had the book on record and the story was set to song...I can still remember the entire thing from memory!). The illustrations are absolutely charming. This is a must-have for any children's book collection. It's a beautiful little story...Will any bunny ever reach Toad's house without "feeling tired" and having to retreat back to Mole's house for a nap? :-) This is one you and your child will remember always. Enjoy.

    A Childhood Favorite

    For 30 years I've been thinking about this book and now it's here for my children. It brought tears to my eyes to see the seven little rabbits on that road!
