School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-- Hopper's mother tells him that Spring is coming, and he rushes off to meet what he hopes will be a new friend. Upon this frail premise, the story unfolds as the little rabbit looks in a hole, a cave, and in a hollow tree for Spring. Along the way he meets a mole and is befriended by a bear with whom he shares a honey feast. The snow-white bunny finally returns home and his mother sets him straight. While the double-paged, dreamy watercolors are quite lovely, the flat story destroys any appeal this book might have. There is no humor or depth of feeling, and children will not derive much enjoyment from Hopper's misunderstanding. All but the very youngest listeners will find the adventure inane. --Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
