No! Said Rabbit [Book]
This hilarious picture book of a strong-willed rabbit perfectly relates to the everyday struggles of parents.
Rabbit is happy doing his own thing, thank you. He doesn’t want to have to listen to anyone else! Not when Mom says to get up, not when Mom says to get dressed, not when Mom says to have breakfast, play outside, come inside, and least of all—have a bath! Then Mom makes a suggestion that Rabbit simply can’t resist…and maybe Rabbit is ready to listen after all!
Debut author-illustrator Marjoke Henrichs delivers a laugh-out-loud tale for both parent and child, with a loving and reassuring ending that makes for excellent for bedtime reading.
★ “Henrichs uses spare, repetitive language and perfectly coordinated, simply rendered cartoon illustrations to highlight Rabbit’s initial reluctance to comply followed by joy in the activities. . . . A thoroughly delightful, warmhearted bedtime story.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
“Will certainly strike chords of familiarity in parents and younger children. More, even not-so-young audiences will delightedly join in the loud chorus—and also enjoy Henrichs’ scribbly cartoon illustrations.” —Booklist Online
“The varied text size—large for each and every ‘NO!’—and the story’s comical repetition encourage engagement and maybe even silly participation during shared readings. Young readers will take delight in the playful and fiercely independent Rabbit, and the sweet surprise ending will remind parents and other adults that sometimes the answer will be a wholehearted ‘Yes!'”—The Horn Book Magazine
