I m reading the book Quiet The Powers of Introverts in a World that Can t Stop Talking, which is probably why the ending of this book rubbed me wrong In the book, Rabbit s evening routine is to tidy everything up and then spend some time reading a story to himself Then Froggie shows up and invites himself in to listen to the story, and he continues coming each night uninvited, making snacks and piles of pillows and eventually bringing along his entire family At this point Rabbit finally tells Fr [...]

I loved this sweet simple children s picture book except I hated the illustrations of Rabbit which are weird and don t have a Rabbit look Rabbit lives a simple life in his home inside the hollow of an old tree and the illustrations show how cozy it is Lovely He lives a simple life alone and at night he eats his dinner, tidies up, and reads himself a story One rainy night Froggie shows up in a storm and takes refuge from the weather in Rabbit s home He listens to the story Rabbit reads aloud and [...]

  9. Seen as an isolated book, this is a fun little story with interesting pictures It was enjoyable to read I gave it three stars because it is a good book.The problem I have is that it joins the overwhelming ranks of today s books and movies and TV shows that teach the moral that an organized life is boring even if you think you like it If one just gives disorder a try or has it thrust upon one , one finds that one likes it Now this is not to say that there isn t anyone who needs to loosen up a bit [...]

  12. Picked this up from the Little Free Library, because the title reminded me of the 10 plagues Very cute Does not pass Bechdel Test, but I pretended that both Rabbit and Frog were female, so in my mind it did.Edited 19 Sept 2016 I made a translation simplification into Spanish for my kids today, and they seemed to like it I know I lost part of the charm because I didn t read it to them in the original language, but the amazing illustrations were still there, and it was a good conversation starter [...]

  14. Genre ConceptCopyright Date 2005I read this in class to my preschoolers They picked the book because of the frogs on the cover I really enjoyed the moral of the story having those unexpected and sometimes unwanted quests come over I could relate to this, however the students didn t get the point to the book but they loved the illustrations So i guess this book had a little something for everybody.

  15. My daughter, almost 3, loves the goofy illustrations, and I love the visual details, like the braided rug made of growing grass and flowers But I love the message in particular, that you might think that you re happy with a very organized, solitary life However, we should leave ourselves open to new experiences and people who might seem chaotic and messy, at first, but who may enrich our lives and open us up to new things.

  16. Use this charming book to teach social skills Rabbit is overwhelmed by boisterous Froggie, reacts with anger and ultimately stretches out of his comfort zone to find friendship and belonging We use this book to teach during Random Acts of Kindness week.Use it for English to teach rhyme and onomatopoeia, too.

  17. Yet another great story about how fun reading is I think I might have a propensity for these tales I also really enjoy the stories of old grumps in this case Rabbit turning in to softies The fact that he s a bit of a doormat in the beginning is a bit troubling, but at least he is eventually able to stand up for himself I think you ll enjoy it too.

  18. She still picks it off the shelf to read at bedtime The illustrations are such that you pick out a new detail on each read She loves the ladybug lampshade, mushrooms and daisies growing on carpet, and the pictures on the walls It lacks proper punctuation in many spots, which my daughter noticed, but the story is great It emphasizes reading and the transformative power of sharing stories.

  19. The lexington children s theatre performed a play based on this book a while ago and Maren got to see it with her Grandma Ever since, it has been a favorite I like it too The story is cute and it makes me think back to when I used to be without kids and how life has changed and become messy and stressful, but I d miss them if they were gone.

  20. Ha ha This was great Wonderful illustrations Cute story Relatable characters Good lessons if so chosen to be learned Funny book titles A happy ending I really liked it It would make a great story time or lap read complete with voices, of course I would recommend to all just for sheer cuteness and silly humor.

  21. actually really freaking cute about froggie who keeps inviting himself over to rabbits house so he can read rabbit read and it totally disrupts rabbits rhythm but when rabbit explains nicely that froggie was never invited and froggie kindly understands and leaves rabbit realizes that those new things that froggie did actually made reading better idk i just liked it.

  22. Rabbit is trying to read a book when Froggie shows up at the door Rabbit reads him a story and after that, Froggie keeps showing up uninvited and with and people What can Rabbit do The art is acrylic paint, inks, and pencil color on illustration board.

  23. Rabbit lives alone, and that s the way he likes it His life revolves around routine tidiness Frog desides to be friend rabbit, but if rabbit wants to have friends and really live life, he will have to chill out a bit.

  24. This book was really good It has many good lessons in it, like sharing, and making friends, and dealing with loneliness It could be used for many different lessons, or just for entertainment I would used it for grades K 5.

  25. rabbit liked his quiet, neat, solitary and orderly life or at least he thought he did when a friendly frog drops by over and over again to hear rabbit read stories, rabbit learns that almost everything is enjoyable with a friend.

  26. Bunny wabbit just wants to be left a lone But these frogs just keep popping in All he wants to do is read his book Will he ever find a solution He doesn t want to hurt the feelings of the frogs.

  27. this is my favorite book to read to the kids I have volunteered to read in my grandkids classrooms before and this is the book I pick my younger grandkids select this frequently as their story time selection.

  28. We ve been reading this on an at least weekly basis for months, ever since my husband s aunt gave it to J He absolutely loves the croaky voice of Froggy, his silly rituals, and the fact that he wears down Rabbit and his rigid routines.This is a great read aloud.

  29. Frogs, frogs everywhere This book shares how too many frogs can be a bad thing but there is nothing worse than being lonely.
