Rabbit's Bad Habits: Book 1 (Rabbit and Bear, Band 1) Reviews
I always wanted to keep reading and it was extremely good writen for kids and also for parents.There are many parts where I laughed or grinned and I would recomend this book for people how like to laugh and just want to read a good book.(my son 11 years)
I read about this book somewhere online and became quite determined to track down a copy. I intended to pass it on to a friend with a 4-year-old grandson, but after reading it (okay, after reading it aloud to my 17-year-old son and my husband - yes, we're a weird family), I'm still not sure it's the kind of book someone might appreciate as a gift. The story is quite touching, and it is told with considerable humor. The author wrote it with input from his young daughter, and part of the hype is that the two of them were determined to make a more realistic kid's story (given that this is about a talking bear and rabbit who end up friends). The topic of poop, however, is discussed at length, and I wasn't convinced that its presence really added anything to the story. So . . . for the time being, I'm not going to pass the book on, but I'll probably add it to the kids' books I'm keeping for my own grandchildren down the road.
I ordered this book for my two grandchildren, age 5 and 3, prior to their recent extended visit. Their mother is a children's book author herself, and it's a challenge to find a book these children don't already own or haven't borrowed from the library. I was pretty sure this first Rabbit & Bear book, Rabbit's Bad Habits, would be new to them, and I'm happy to report that it was a huge hit with both my grandson and granddaughter, evoking rapt attention and howls of laughter even after many readings. We're all looking forward to a sequel!
We love this series in my household. There are one or two words we don't use in my household for our kids' age level of which I can not recall off the top of my head, but it is not something that has stopped us from enjoying these stories. Highly entertaining and a great intro into longer books for young kids.
I read a review online, and had to order a copy. I was not disappointed. Some sections are laugh out loud funny, and the story itself has a very positive message.My kids love the book, and I got a second copy for a family member to share with her kids too.It is short enough that you can read it in one sitting, but could also be spaced out over a few bedtimes.
Bear wakes up midwinter when something disturbs her hibernation. She's ravenously hungry, but her food is missing. She decides to make a snowman to distract herself, but it doesn't go so well. Rabbit has plenty to say about her snowman, and some things about gravity. Eventually, Bear's hunger makes itself quite evident and Rabbit offers Bear a very measly carrot. But Rabbit has a secret, and when Bear saves Rabbit from a wolf, Rabbit's conscience tells him he needs to make things right.This is aimed at lower grade beginning readers, so the text is simple and the plot is predictable. How to describe this...hmm, imagine if you stuck Frog and Toad and a Bugs Bunny episode in a blender. You might get something a bit like this. I really appreciate that the author had her daughter be the first reader and offer advice. There are elements I might have cut or find myself rolling my eyes at, but the target audience should find it hilarious. I can appreciate it once I put myself in a younger set of shoes, particularly the slapstick elements. The illustrations are adorable, and definitely earned this an extra star from me.
