Description
When six rabbits find a giant carrot, they're not sure exactly what they should do with it. But they have all sorts of grand and adventurous ideas: What if they make it into a boat and visit all the fishes? Or build a carrot airplane to fly away to far-off lands? Or perhaps turn it into the largest house ever?
When the rabbits have exhausted their ideas and dreamed all their carrot dreams, they find that they are rather hungry -- and realize that they may have forgotten the most obvious solution of all. This delightful tale provides the perfect opportunity for young children to let their own imaginations run wild.
