Tiny Rabbit’s Big Wish
by Margarita Engle, illustrated by David Walker
Houghton, Mifflin, Harcourt, 2014
A tiny rabbit shares the dreams of the small child, of growing bigger. Author Margarita Engle captures, in a poetic voice, a small child’s frustration of thinking, wishing and dreaming of growing bigger, “but he grew only to the height of a slightly taller small rabbit.” And illustrator David Walker portrays the innocence of the very youngest in colorful, simple illustrations. But there are some times when the tiny rabbit is “ENORMOUSLY” happy he is small.
Playful, full of innocence, a heartfelt book for some children’s very biggest concern; a delight to read.
