I received this ARC from Netgalley for an honest review.
Rabbit loves the sunset and wants to fly into it like bird does. He wants bird to help him fly. Together they workout to build strong muscles in hopes that it will help rabbit fly. Bird tells him to flap his wings like a hummingbird, but it's no use, rabbits aren't supposed to fly, they are supposed to run fast and hop into burrows. A story about friendship, encouragement and determination. I do love the illustrations, they were my favorite part of the book.
Adorable and sweet story about accepting oneself. We really enjoyed reading this story about a bunny wanting to fly then learning to be himself.
I thoroughly enjoyed this beautifully illustrated tale of a rabbit who longs to do what other animals do naturally. This would make an excellent storytime read as its subtle message about how we're all good at different things will shine through.
Rabbit sees bird flying in the sky and decides he wants to fly too. Bird comes down and tries various things to help rabbit, but nothing works. What rabbit doesn't realize is that while he wants to fly like bird, bird wonders how he runs so fast. This book demonstrates that it is okay to dream, it is great to have friends that will help you try to achieve those dreams, but that it is important to recognize our own gifts and talents and to use them to achieve things. The watercolour illustrations in this book are gorgeous and the colours amazing. I enjoyed looking at them as much as reading the book. A great book for a classroom teaching about recognizing and accepting our gifts and talents.
This book was adorable! The story is about a rabbit who wants so much to fly and in the end he learns to make the most of the abilities he was given. The illustrations were so very beautiful, maybe my favorite in any picture book I have ever read.
I will put a review on Amazon when it releases.
