    Now I will admit I never knew that there was a TV series based on this book until just recently I guess it is because I just read this book recently But despite not knowing about that, My Friend Rabbit is a children s book that is written and illustrated by Eric Rohmann and it has won the Caldecott Medal award and this is seriously one children s book that I had enjoyed immensely Mouse s best friend is Rabbit and they usually play together, especially with Mouse s special toy airplane Unf Now I will admit I never knew that there was a TV series based on this book until just recently I guess it is because I just read this book recently But despite not knowing about that, My Friend Rabbit is a children s book that is written and illustrated by Eric Rohmann and it has won the Caldecott Medal award and this is seriously one children s book that I had enjoyed immensely Mouse s best friend is Rabbit and they usually play together, especially with Mouse s special toy airplane Unfortunately, Rabbit has a tendency to get himself in trouble and when he plays with Mouse s toy airplane and gets it stuck in a tree, Rabbit of course, has a plan to get the airplane out of the tree So, Rabbit gathers up various animals in the forest which included an elephant, a rhinoceros, a hippopotamus, a bear, an alligator and manyanimals in order to have the animals stand on each other to make a ladder and have mouse climb on the animals to reach his airplane Will this plan work or will it causeproblems for everyone Read this book to find outWow This book was simply cute, hilarious and amazing all at the same time and I am so glad that I had the honor to check this book out Eric Rohmann s writing is witty and cute, even though there were not that many words on each page I loved the hilarious moments in this book where Rabbit ends up causing trouble for everyone when he tries to help out his friend Mouse as his tactics such as stacking various animals on top of each other to create a ladder was downright exaggerated to see I also loved the fact that Mouse was still willing to defend Rabbit throughout the story despite Rabbit making so many mistakes as it shows how strong their friendship is and how Mouse accepts Rabbit for who he is no matter what Eric Rohmann s artwork is also something that should be desired as the characters are drawn in bold and sharp edged lines that really bring out so much uniqueness to the story and I loved the way that Rabbit and Mouse are drawn in an extremely cute way on each page.Overall, My Friend Rabbit is a truly fantastic book that children who want to learnabout the power of friendship should definitely check out and this book will remain a favorite among children and parents for many years to come Review is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog

    My kids thought this was to put it in their words fantastic The pictures are beautifully illustrated and kept all my children interested until the end Not a lot of words, not even a level 1 reader, however, it hasthan enough content as a story to entertain I can understand why this is a Caldecott winner as well Two thumbs up from our family.

    This was a story with some text but it was mostly wordless My children thought the illustrations were comical and the gentle themeof loving your friend, faults and all, was sweet.

    Tonight was a night spent with our friends, and with it, always some time sharing in the bedtime read aloud routine It s a big deal for Lindsay and I, and this was my chosen book for my read aloud This is one I m somewhat familiar with, as this was the 2003 Caldecott winner It is very pleasing to look at and illustrations truly make up most of the story It tells a tale of a rabbit and mouse, but the rabbit in this story is always finding trouble He gets involved with a lot of animals, and Tonight was a night spent with our friends, and with it, always some time sharing in the bedtime read aloud routine It s a big deal for Lindsay and I, and this was my chosen book for my read aloud This is one I m somewhat familiar with, as this was the 2003 Caldecott winner It is very pleasing to look at and illustrations truly make up most of the story It tells a tale of a rabbit and mouse, but the rabbit in this story is always finding trouble He gets involved with a lot of animals, and well, causes a lot of trouble There s very little text, so as a read aloud, it s limited but opens up a lot of possibilities to creativity and discussion We enjoyed a lot of discussion questions and silliness and it made this an enjoyable experience Apparently this has become some part of a show or show itself too I don t know about that just seemed from our conversation

    Perhaps the beauty in this picture book story is the universality of the experiences shared by Mouse and Rabbit Because Mouse loves his friend, he puts up with him, even when he causes trouble Although Rabbit means well, his solutions to problems often lead to evenproblems, and nothing ever goes as he plans Young and older readers can relate to the story because so many of them have friends just like Rabbit This simply told tale has a timeless quality about it, and the hand colored rel Perhaps the beauty in this picture book story is the universality of the experiences shared by Mouse and Rabbit Because Mouse loves his friend, he puts up with him, even when he causes trouble Although Rabbit means well, his solutions to problems often lead to evenproblems, and nothing ever goes as he plans Young and older readers can relate to the story because so many of them have friends just like Rabbit This simply told tale has a timeless quality about it, and the hand colored relief prints show Rabbit s gleeful joy as he plays with Mouse s airplane, seemingly unconcerned about the craft becoming stuck in a tree or Mouse s inability to see while he s flying The simple text follows the two from mishap to mishap Mouse puts up with Rabbit and joins him in playful adventures but never really tries to change him at all That makes me wonder about Mouse s patience and tolerance and Rabbit s lack of awareness What should we do when a friend really is as clueless about consequences as Mouse s friend

    A classic story about friendship that anyone of any age will enjoy The story is about a mouse and his best friend, the rabbit The mouse is always being pulled into crazy situations by the rabbit who always has another idea With every turn of the page, there is another funny moment of the rabbit getting the mouse into trouble The mouse sticks by the rabbits side even if sometimes he gets mad at him The story ends with a great message about friendship when the mouse says, But Rabbit means A classic story about friendship that anyone of any age will enjoy The story is about a mouse and his best friend, the rabbit The mouse is always being pulled into crazy situations by the rabbit who always has another idea With every turn of the page, there is another funny moment of the rabbit getting the mouse into trouble The mouse sticks by the rabbits side even if sometimes he gets mad at him The story ends with a great message about friendship when the mouse says, But Rabbit means well And he is my friend The message of this story appeals to anybody who has ever lost a friend over something meaningless
