Taken from the back cover - “With cranberry season upon them, Fox and Rabbit are hard at work harvesting cranberries to take to market. Later that evening, an out of the ordinary visitor pokes around looking for a warm place to rest, causing quite a ruckus in… Fox and Rabbit’s Cranberry Surprise.” Fox and Rabbit work very hard at gathering cranberries. A little visitor accidentally ruins a lot of their work. But Fox and Rabbit show the visitor kindness instead of anger. Why I liked this book – I love that the story involves friends that are a fox and a rabbit (Fox and Rabbit become friends in the first book of this series “Fox and Rabbit’s Garden” which you can read about below). This story has the main characters, Fox and Rabbit, showing kindness and friendship to a stranger (a little hedgehog) who accidentally ruins part of their harvest. It is a nice message. The illustrations are marvelous and go very well with the story. I also like the gardening / harvesting theme in the book.
What a treat to read to my two young children! Not only did they enjoy listening to the story, the pictures were illustrated well, making it a delight for them to follow along as I read. The story is written in rhyme, making it easy to read, which is good, since my kids wanted me to read it twice in a row, and continue to ask for it to be read to them! This happy tale has a simple story line, which makes it appropriate for all ages. As stated before, the pictures keep both boys and girls' attentions, and the story itself has a good message behind it, showing how it is best to be kind to one another and to care for others with generosity. I would recommend this book for youngsters who enjoy nature, animals and friendship.
