Summary

Summary

Davy and Santa save the day while celebrating the true spirit of Christmas! When Davy's father says: 'Santa Claus likes us to share things and help each other,' Davy takes it to heart. Soon Davy has fed all of the hungry animals and now his family will have to go hungry this Christmas. But on Christmas Eve, they hear a knock on the door. Could it be Santa Claus? Perhaps Davy and his family will have a merry Christmas after all!

Booklist Review

Ages 4^-8. In the fifth book featuring the little bunny Davy, the simple theme of sharing is captured when Davy makes a well-intentioned blunder. Davy's father has just told his five children that Santa Claus likes everyone to share and to help one another, a message that Davy takes to heart. While his family's away, he empties the larder, bit by bit, to feed hungry animals outside in the snow. The stores of corn he scatters to the birds; bundles of hay he hauls to the deer; apples and carrots he tosses to small creatures. He's sure everyone (and certainly Santa) will be proud of him but feels dejected when his family has quite the opposite response. How will they last the winter without food? The soft, cozy illustrations, absolutely suited to the story, give a visual lesson in how a family pulls together in hard times. The rabbits, with their full range of facial expressions, do indeed survive, only to discover on Christmas Eve that Davy's generosity returns to them twofold. --Shelley Townsend-Hudson


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2‘Davy fans will not be disappointed in this story about the young rabbit who always finds himself in some sort of predicament. The day after his father tells him and his siblings about the characteristics that Santa appreciates (e.g., being kind, loving, and helpful), Davy is left at home alone. As he spies hungry animals, he remembers his father's words and proceeds to share the family's food supply with the starving creatures. Upon their return to the burrow, his parents and siblings express their disapproval at Davy's generosity. However, after a brief discussion, they realize Davy's good intentions and cooperate by carefully rationing their meals. In the spirit of Christmas, Davy's goodness is rewarded and all is well. The story is rather syrupy; Davy continues his kindness by sharing any extra crumbs. Later, on Christmas Eve, the animals thank him and his family with delicious gifts and a promise to show him where the nicest things grow during the next season. Tharlet's watercolor-and-pencil illustrations enliven the text. Children will particularly enjoy the pictures of Davy clutching, pulling, and dragging his toy bunny throughout the story.‘MMH (c) Copyright 2010.
