The rabbit is getting ready for winter and finds two turnips but she was so considerate and gave one of her turnips to another animal friend Then the other animal who was also warm hearted like her and gave the turnip to the other friend Finally the turnip ends up at the rabbit s house and they share the turnip altogether This is a cute story but the story is too obvious to appeal to students so that teacher may be hard to motivate students, and this tale from China but I could not find any part [...]

As I opened the book I recognized the style of Laura Dronzek, a style we really liked in Birds She s also drawn rabbits for Kevin Henkes see Oh This is a very sweet tale of sharing I like how the generosity replicates and spreads like a wave While I didn t like it as immensely as Birds, in which the colors of the acrylics are just so satisfying, I really liked the message and it s definitely a book to recommend.

This is a book that could be used to teach children about sharing and manners I loved the story about the Rabbit that did not want to feel greedy so he sets out to leave a turnip for his friend Donkey Donkey had found a potato and felt that was plenty for him to eat, so he took the turnip to the goat Goat had found some cabbage which was enough for him, so he took the turnip to Deer s house Deer had found a carrot and that was plenty for him Deer takes the turnip back to Rabbit When rabbit woke [...]

In this book the rabbit is preparing for the winter and searching for food The rabbit finds one nut that it needs so it displays kindness by sharing what he didn t need with other animals In the end every animal shows kindness by passing the extra food to one another and it ends up back with rabbit.

I ve read a version of this story before I enjoyed this version as I felt it didn t use too many words to tell the simple story of characters thinking of others before themselves It is sweet and fun for a little one to fill in the words that are repeated in the expected spots because everyone leaves the turnip on a neighbor s doorstep.

This is a new book to the school library read to my youngest son s class for parent reading The story of friendship and pay it forward is seen in this sweet story about animal friendship Passing along a precious turnip, the animals discover that they are all one big family The colorful yellow bird on most pages makes this a delightful book to share.
