Description

This saga of a swiftly increasing family of rabbits in search of a new place to call their own, rendered in exquisitely detailed artwork featuring cut-outs and gatefolds, is a perfect book for small children whose families are moving to a new home.

Mr. and Mrs. Rabbit are having baby bunnies, and their burrow-for-two is just too small to accomodate a growing family. Time to call the forest real estate agent! As anyone searching for a new home must, the Rabbits look at a lot of different places, each one appealing in its own way, but none of them quite is right! Will they find the perfect new home to call their own?

A single, black brushstroke that runs through the entire book provides a line that can be traced by little fingers from page to page, and anchors the detailed pen-and-ink style that Steve uses to show the forest homes and the creatures who currently inhabit them--the visible above-ground part of each burrow appears above the line, and the underground portion shows below the line. In addition, circular die cuts in each page allow a peek into the next burrow.

With gorgeous artwork and exquisite production, this lovely little volume makes a fine gift for any new homeowner, and particularly for those with small children.

· according to the US Census Bureau, around 40 million Americans move house each year--and growing families account for a significant percentage of the numbers, as they outgrow their spaces

· preschoolers and elementary-school age kids often feel significant anxiety about moving house; this book helps them anticipate the change with positive feelings
