Summary

Summary

It is Little Rabbit's birthday and his family surprises him with wrapped presents and a special trip to Rabbit World Theme Park. Mama Rabbit packs a special birthday picnic and the family sets off for the amusement park with Little Rabbit and his red balloon leading the way. Little Rabbit is excited by the noise, color, and crowded activity of the park. He insists he is a big rabbit now and ignores his parents' warnings to stay close. But when he suddenly finds himself all alone, he doesn't feel quite so grown up anymore. Young readers will cheer Little Rabbit's triumphant reunion with his beloved family and will relate to young character's conflicting desire for independence and his need of loving supervision. Harry Horse's colorful and buoyant illustrations vividly depict Little Rabbit's growing excitement and bring to life the exuberant atmosphere of the amusement park.

Booklist Review

PreS^-Gr. 2. Little Rabbit can hardly stand the excitement on his birthday. The whole family is off to "Rabbit World," the rabbit equivalent to Disneyland. With a red balloon from his parents, Little Rabbit leads the way. "Stay close," says his mother, but Little Rabbit insists that he's big and pushes on ahead. Then he realizes that he's lost and he's terrified. Thankfully, the red balloon guides his family to him, but Little Rabbit has to accept that he must be patient and stay near his parents until he grows a little bigger. The lovely ink-and-watercolor illustrations are filled with clever details kids will enjoy--carrot-shaped paddleboats and bunny roller-coaster cars. Children will welcome this charming story and will connect with rabbit's anxiety when he's separated from his family and lost in the crowd. --Helen Rosenberg


Publisher's Weekly Review

Everyone's favorite long-eared toddler becomes the perfect board book star with this edition of Little Rabbit Lost by Harry Horse. In a starred review, PW wrote, "Horse's visual depiction of Little Rabbit is dead-on. The gentle lesson-that even `big' boys and girls can get separated from their parents-ends on an uplifting note, with a `great big hug,' a message both grownups and kids will take to heart."

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Little Rabbit is thrilled that his family is taking him to "Rabbit World" for his birthday, for he has always wanted to go there and it's a sure sign that "I'm a big rabbit now." Despite his parents' admonitions to stay close, he is off and running, always out in front with his big red balloon, and it's all his mother can do to keep him in sight. Finally, after becoming bored watching his older siblings ride the Big Hopper roller coaster that he's too small for, he wanders off to the bouncy castle and is having fun until he realizes that his mother is nowhere in sight. Suddenly, feeling "as small as he really was," he tries to find her. He's on the verge of panic, when the balloon helps to reunite them, and the whole family celebrates with a big birthday picnic, complete with cake. Little Rabbit, with his tiny blue suit and big red balloon, is an endearing figure who will win the sympathy of many young listeners who feel really big one minute and small the next. This cautionary tale has a deft and light touch, with soft, watercolor illustrations that portray a cozy rabbit home; an inviting theme park; and a small, but intrepid, protagonist.-Jane Marino, Scarsdale Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
