Follow a pair of friends that no matter how hard they try get into trouble together. When Rabbit gets Mouse's plane stuck in the tree, Rabbit has to find a way to get it back down. I loved how cute the story was and the fact that sometimes the pictures were more important than the words. I would recommend this book for the ages 4-7, depending on individual reading levels. ( )

A story about a rabbit and his new toy plane, and the trouble he manages to get himself into.
  Mimarler | Mar 5, 2017 |
We all have that best friend who gets in trouble with us. I enjoy how everything is outlined in what appears to be a big, black, bold sharpie. It makes all the artwork pop and look a little 3-D. My favorite thing about the book it the pages without the words. All you can see is little rabbit with a piece of another animal. He looks like he is struggling when pulling the animal. The way the illustrates it's a struggle is rabbits tongue is out which sometimes symbolizes focusing and the sweat flinging off the top of his forehead. the next page is a huge elephant. The elephant is so detailed we can see all his wrinkles. Rabbit appears to be stacking all the animals up in order to get the airplane out of the tree. Another thing I appreciate, is when the tower calliopes it is done page by page. First, the ducks fall. Then, everyone else follows. All the animals look angry once the tower has fallen. But, the mouse sticks with rabbit because they are best friends and have the airplane back. ( )

Summary: The friend that means well, the trouble that follows, the solution, more trouble and friendship that lasts. Rabbit the friend that means well but always gets into trouble. The trouble he gets his friend mouses's toy stuck in a tree. The solution bring in and stack animals to reach it. More trouble follows when they just reach it with mouse they all fall down on each other and everybody is mad at rabbit. The friendship solidifies when mouse saves rabbit but together the toy, rabbit and mouse all get stuck in the tree again.

Personally life with friends is always more interesting. A good friend can get you out of trouble, but your best friend gets you into a little as well but always together. I love that this story reflects that so truly.

In the classroom you can use this for alternative thinking. Ask a few questions and explore pros and cons of each decision and attempt to think through each decision. Create a problem with multiple solutions, such as getting a toy out of a tree and have them write out or draw their solution. Another creative way of looking at this is have them write a set of instructions for making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or if you have to deal with peanut allergies a sandwich of their choice but they need to do the research on every step.
