PreSchool-Grade 2-Little Rabbit is thrilled that his family is taking him to "Rabbit World" for his birthday, for he has always wanted to go there and it's a sure sign that "I'm a big rabbit now." Despite his parents' admonitions to stay close, he is off and running, always out in front with his big red balloon, and it's all his mother can do to keep him in sight. Finally, after becoming bored watching his older siblings ride the Big Hopper roller coaster that he's too small for, he wanders off to the bouncy castle and is having fun until he realizes that his mother is nowhere in sight. Suddenly, feeling "as small as he really was," he tries to find her. He's on the verge of panic, when the balloon helps to reunite them, and the whole family celebrates with a big birthday picnic, complete with cake. Little Rabbit, with his tiny blue suit and big red balloon, is an endearing figure who will win the sympathy of many young listeners who feel really big one minute and small the next. This cautionary tale has a deft and light touch, with soft, watercolor illustrations that portray a cozy rabbit home; an inviting theme park; and a small, but intrepid, protagonist.
