My 4 year old grandson absolutely loved this story! It was the go-to bedtime story for many nights. At the time, we both had sore throats and so speaking softly and gently commenting on what was happening in the illustrations was as magical as the story itself. Each time we "read" it, we added more details about what might be happening, noting little details that we didn't see before. Wonderfully enchanting.

I have never "read" a wordless book with a little person. This story, with its fanciful rabbit and devoted sisters, makes me want to try.

Point 1 in favor of this book: jaw-droppingly beautiful cut paper illustrations. Point 2 in favor of this book: magic. Always good! Point 3: possibly the first children's picture book I have EVER read with a main character who has a disability, but disability isn't the focus of the book.

Two sisters find a small bunny out in the snow, and initially bring it in to warm up, but then realize they must return it outside. One sister uses a wheelchair, and she keeps up just fine until one of her wheels gets snagged on a bush. Neither of them can dislodge it, so the no-wheelchair sister sits in her lap for warmth while they try to figure out what to do. This story could just as easily have been the non-wheelchair-using sister getting her foot caught in a hole in the ground, and the girls are clearly both in this together, equal partners.

I am a little concerned that no parents or guardians seem to have noticed these two girls are out in the snowy woods and it's getting dark. What's up with that? But I guess the outcome would be less magical if Dad or Auntie showed up with a lantern and some gardening shears.
