Little White Rabbit, by Kevin Henkes

Published November 29, 2012 by Dagmar

littlewhiterabbitI had never read this book by Kevin Henkes and didn’t know what to expect.  I loved that the little white rabbit imagined himself as different things.  This gave me a great opportunity to ask my preschoolers to close their eyes and imagine with the little white rabbit.  The illustrations are beautiful, in a wonderful green and pastel pallet that is pleasing and soothing at the same time.

Synopsis: Little white rabbit wonders what it would be like to be green, to be as tall as a fir tree, to flutter like a butterfly and as still as a stone.  When he runs from a cat, he runs home.  “Little white rabbit wondered about many things, but he didn’t wonder who loved him.”
