Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Delicate watercolor paintings in rich hues, featuring long-eared rabbits, aptly carry the Christmas sentiments across the pages." Booklist, ALA
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Simple tales about a rabbit family preparing for the holidays include letter writing, cookie baking, wrapping presents, decorating the tree and more. The talking objects in the stories struck this reviewer as a bit strange. The soft pencil and watercolor illustrations are more interesting than the text.
