Book Review

Little Rabbit is so sweet!

Ila says: Little Rabbit is so sweet! This book made me think of spring time and Easter!

The picture are calming and beautiful. They made me feel very peaceful. Big Rabbit is so kind so all in all it is a happy book.

Mum says: Such a sweet book! I love the short chapters giving us the flexibility to read the whole book in one go or break it down over a few bedtime sessions. Handy little size too, perfect for Ila to hold independently. We both felt that the title was a little misleading as we were anticipating a BIG surprise. When nothing hugely surprising happened it was a little anticlimactic.
