Little Rabbit's Christmas, by Harry Horse


Well, I thought I was done with reviews involving giveaways last week but when a publisher offers you and one of your readers a copy of a cute storybook, how can I in good conscious refuse? So, I hope you'll indulge me for another giveaway here.

In this case, Peachtree Publishers sent me a copy of Little Rabbit's Christmas to peruse. I've been wondering about the Little Rabbit series by Harry Horse for some time so I was happy to have a look-see through this Christmas title. Neither I, nor my children were remotely disappointed! (It's been a requested re-read around these parts since it arrived this past weekend.)

Little Rabbit's Christmas tells the story of Little Rabbit who wants a red sled for Christmas. It's the only thing he wants and he bugs his parents for it. On Christmas morning he discovers that he has received the coveted gift. All of his friends and family are in awe of it but Little Rabbit is feeling a tad bit possessive of it and, quite frankly, has a very bad attitude when it comes to sharing. In the end, he discovers that having a sled is really only fun if you DO share it with your friends!

I thought this storybook had a great message for youngsters who eagerly anticipate and await Christmas gifts and treats and then are called upon to share them. We're kind of in that stage where we have our prized items that we don't want to share and we've been talking a lot about kindness and sharing with others (primarily our brothers.) I thought this book fit in perfectly with the season of gifts and giving and thought the subject matter was tastefully handled. Little Rabbit isn't too bratty (so that you can't stand actually reading the story) and he learns his lesson fairly quickly and in a positive manner. The illustrations, also by Harry Horse, are adorable and I liked this book very much.

As I mentioned, Peachtree Publishers offered up a copy for myself and one of my readers. Would you also like to share this story with your children, or young ones that you are close to? Simply leave a comment below! This contest will be open through Monday, December 13th.

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THE WINNER (as selected by random.org) IS #20 - Linda Kish! Congratulations!

Again, Merry Christmas from myself and Peachtree Publishers!
