Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Maria Pereira
This is the sixth book in a series about Davy the Rabbit and his family and friends. It deals with friendship--its joys and its shortcomings. Davy and Eddie decide to build a boat and a dam. Unfortunately Eddie's dam is not strong enough and Davy's boat gets washed downstream. Davy is very angry with his friend and vows to have nothing more to do with him. He soon misses his buddy and discovers that he cannot build a dam without him. Eddie also discovers that he cannot build a boat without Davy's help. They pool their skills and discover that two heads are better than one. What child couldn't warm to these delightfully expressive bunnies and their plight? The bunnies and the background are lovingly illustrated with lots of color and bold strokes. Parents can use this book to introduce their kids to friendship and its imperfections.

PreS-Gr 2-The two young rabbit friends return. As Eddie tries to build a dam, Davy makes a boat. They work side by side until the dam bursts and Davy's creation sails away beyond reach. The frustrated builders resort to ear pulling, and Davy blames his pal for the loss of his boat, informing him that, "You're not my friend anymore." At home he doesn't get much sympathy from Mother Rabbit, his toy bunny is boring, and his siblings have other plans, except for baby, and she's "just a baby." He walks back to the brook, tries his hand at dam building, and finds Eddie trying to build a boat. The relationship is mended as they ask one another for help. Young children will identify with this simple friendship story that provides a good lesson on working things out together. The soft, appealing, watercolor characters and the tranquil background setting blend to make this a beautiful story to share. Children will easily relate to Davy and his struggles, whether this is the first or the sixth time that they meet him.-Melanie S.
