Boy and Rabbit are getting ready for Christmas. Rabbit helps Boy to decorate, putting the star on the tree and hanging candy canes. They have fun taking ornaments and things out of the boxes to decorate, but then Rabbit disappears! The boy finds him just in time as the family comes to visit. Boy and Rabbit set the table for everyone and Rabbit sits next to Boy at the table. But then Rabbit slips and falls. Boy rescues him from under the table, where all Rabbit sees is feet. They join the rest of the family in a Christmas celebration. Young children will enjoy this easy-to-read book. The beautifully illustrated pictures add to the fun of the story.

This is an easy reader, level 1 book for young readers.  It's a CHRISTMAS play on the classic Velveteen Rabbit story.  Lovely colorful pictures that help in deciphering the words in the story. I appreciate this book that my granddaughter can read, that also leads to me reading the classic tale to her!
