Rabbit goes everywhere with Kara: to Papa’s house, where they eat “oodles of noodles” and play hide-and-seek, and to Mama’s house, where they eat chicken and rice and dance. But one day, when it’s time to leave Papa’s house for Mama’s, Rabbit asks, “Where do I live?” Kara doesn’t know the answer. When Rabbit asks to stay at Papa’s house, Kara leaves her toy behind, but she misses Rabbit at Mama’s house. What is the answer to Rabbit’s question, and how can Kara keep from missing him?
With enormous warmth and empathy, Missing Rabbit speaks directly to young children whose parents are divorced and live in different places. Cyd Moore’s whimsical artwork is perfectly matched to this reassuring tale about parental love and the true meaning of home.
