Pig is writing a thank-you note to his grandma when his friend Rabbit comes over to play. Eager to get in on the action, Rabbit writes one of his own . . . and another . . . and another . . . until his flurry of thank-you notes has Pig in a tizzy. Pig just wants to finish writing his note in peace! Fortunately, Rabbit’s last thank-you note reminds Pig how lucky he is to have Rabbit as a friend.
This funny friendship story shows how different personalities can manage to fit together perfectly. Rabbit’s letters to everyone from the president to the crossing guard will have readers chuckling as the delightful duo from Ten Things I Love About You discovers the joy of showing gratitude to the special people in their lives.
Before Pig can play with his pal Rabbit, he wants to finish his thank-you letter. But will his friend give him that chance? When Rabbit learns that Pig is writing his grandmother to thank her for the birthday sweater he is proudly sporting, Rabbit immediately wants to thank his grandma too. (If you give a rabbit a piece of paper and a pencil….) In no time, he has dashed off a quick letter thanking her for the cake she always bakes for his birthday. Are you done yet, Pig? But no, Pig is telling his grandma about the weather, which sparks another letter-writing flurry in the excitable Rabbit—this time to the president for doing a great job. Similarly, he's inspired to write to seven other community helpers (including his crossing guard, Mrs. Chicken!). So, he's off to the mailbox, finally leaving his exasperated friend in peace. But Rabbit's used all his envelopes and stamps! Readers will empathize with Pig, whose frustrations are written right across his face. Luckily, a final thank-you letter from Rabbit comes with a resupply. The final page shows Pig's letter in his happy grandmother's trotters, so readers can see a splendid example of a well-written thank-you letter. Here's hoping Pig's refreshingly eager attitude about writing thank-you letters will rub off.Inspirational examples abound in both giving thanks and sharing. (Picture book. 4-8)
