|Summary, etc.:||As his fifth birthday party approaches, Little Rabbit decides to invite only those friends who are also too old to cry until he learns that others of all ages weep for all sorts of reasons.|
- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2006 May #1
PreS-Gr. 2. This collaboration between sisters addresses a common developmental issue while telling an entertaining story. Little Rabbit decides that "Crying is for babies." With that in mind, he declares that only friends who don't cry can come to his birthday party. But his three best friends still cry, and they explain why. When it turns out that even his mother cries--sometimes because she is happy--Little Rabbit changes his mind about crying and about inviting his party guests. Delicious acrylic paintings, in a subdued but springlike palette, depict a cozy home, full of enjoyable visual details, and Little Rabbit's journey to see his friends offers a host of animals for children to name as well as some touches of sweet humor. The rhythm and repetition in the language and the tale will encourage children to predict the story's outcome. ((Reviewed May 1, 2006)) Copyright 2006 Booklist Reviews.
