Another delightful story from the Klise sisters - this time with a Christmas theme! Little Rabbit and Mother Rabbit have decided to design and knit hats for all of their friends for the coming blizzard that will start on Christmas Eve. This is a wonderful holiday selection for the elementary school classroom or school library.
From School Library Journal:
A sweet tale of gift giving and friendship. When Mother Rabbit hears that a blizzard is expected to hit on Christmas Eve, she knits Little Rabbit a hat that shows off his long, beautiful ears. He loves it, and suggests that they give their animal friends hats as Christmas presents. Mother Rabbit agrees, and the two set off to take stealthy measurements, then carefully craft the hats to suit the personality and physical attributes of each animal. The finished products are, well, creative; the expressions on the animals' faces as they view their gifts in a mirror are priceless. However, when the snow begins to fall, the recipients quickly realize that their presents are just what they needed.
