E's Pick of the Week - Little White Rabbit by Kevin Henkes
The “E's Pick of the Week” for this lovely Tuesday is Kevin Henkes’ new picture book, “Little White Rabbit”, which just came out from Greenwillow Books on January 25th. What can I say? My son is in the know about hot new books! Haha. I saw this book at ALA Midwinter and knew that we had to purchase it as soon as it was released.
This book is absolutely adorable. It says the age range is 4-8, but my toddler absolutely loves it. His face lights up when he sees the book and he runs to the couch so we can read it together. I grew up on a rabbit farm in Wisconsin (Mr. Henkes’ home state!) so rabbits are one of my favorite animals. Put it together with a story about imagining things and incredibly beautiful art... you get one fantastic book for your children.
You can find it online or at your local bookstore. You can visit Amazon.com and get a look inside the book to preview Mr. Henkes’ beautiful artwork.
