Whenever Rabbit is around, something is bound to go wrong. He doesn't mean to cause trouble; it just works out that way. Mouse knows this but he still allows Rabbit play with his toy plane because they're best friends. "My Friend Rabbit" is about the meaning of friendship and the things we do for friends. ( )

This fun story is a great example of a fantasy because animals do not talk and play together as they do in the book. This story is about a rabbit who is followed by trouble but is loved by his dear friend mouse. Mouse accepts rabbit for who he is. The illustration in this book are fun and vibrant. There is a great use of bright colors and shapes that really grab your attention. Media: relief print ( )

Genre: Fantasy

I would use this book to:
-teach students about how the illustrations help tell the story
-teach students about conflict and resolution

Summary: This book is about the friendship of a rabbit and a mouse. When mouse lets Rabbit play with his airplane, Rabbit gets it stuck on a tree. Rabbit the thinks of an idea to solve the problem.

Media: watercolor

Critique: "My Friend Rabbit" is a great example of fantasy because the two main characters are talking animals that perform activities that animals in the real world are unable to do. For example, Rabbit and his friend mouse get a toy airplane stuck on a tree and Rabbit gathers and stacks big animals on top of each other to be able to reach and get the airplane down. ( )

“My Friend Rabbit” is a story that is narrated by a mouse. The rabbit is always dragging trouble behind him. After Rabbit sends mouse’s airplane soaring up into a tree, that is where you begin to take in all of Rabbits ambitious intentions. They go through many different obstacles, or animals, to retrieve this plane. These animals stand as a ladder, or building blocks to reach the top of the tree. After ample amounts of attempts, and feathers flying along the way, the airplane falls from the tree. The story comes to a close of two friends forgiving.

I believe that this would be a great book to use in an art lesson, and a reading comprehension as well. The story teaches many lessons, and how to work together. So, the over all message that the students would be receiving would give room for deep discussion with the students. They can also take what they have learned into a Language Arts lesson over creative writing.
