Rabbit is a great friend, full of ideas and eager to help. But whenever he does “help” everything goes wrong.

This is a delightful picture book for very young children. There are very few words, allowing the parent and child plenty of room for their imaginations to fill in the story based on Rohmann’s great illustrations. I particularly loved the pile of animals Rabbit arranged in an effort to get the airplane out of the tree!

Of course, everyone forgives Rabbit because he IS such a good and loyal friend, even if he causes more problems than he fixes. ( )

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.

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. ( )
