Books of the Week – Dec. 19, 2009
Whew, I didn’t know if I’d get around to writing this post or not. (being as how I’m still on my “break”, hahahahahaha; I think I’m back, I just don’t want to actually say so for some reason. Crazy girl.)
I have to tell you about one of our favorite Christmas books… Little Rabbit’s Christmas, by Harry Horse.
This is a book about a little rabbit who wants a red sled for Christmas. He loves this sled. Loves it. And of course the Christmas Rabbit brings him his sled. Little Rabbit suddenly feels very conflicted – he wants his friends to admire the sled, but he doesn’t want to share it. He goes off where he can be alone with his sled, but that isn’t much fun either as there is no one to watch him sliding down the hill.
Little Rabbit gets into a bit of trouble and ends up stuck in the snow with the red sled broken. (M yelled “OH NO!” at this part, he was really into this book, hee hee.) Little Rabbit’s friends are more generous than he, thankfully, and they help him out, fix his sled and even give it a new coat of paint. Then they all enjoy sledding for the rest of the day… together. Little Rabbit learns that the best things are even better when they are shared with friends.
This book is fun to read, keeps M interested, and has so many good (yet subtle) lessons about friendship, sharing, helping, and how to handle one’s feelings appropriately. There’s even a little lesson about listening to your mama when she tells you to wear your mittens. :) Such a cute book and we all love it. This is going on our “buy” list for sure.
