Overview
A hopping good "tail" about the love between a mama rabbit and her children

Mama Rabbit is too sick to leave her bed. Poor Mama When Papa Rabbit leaves home to get her some medicine, the ten little rabbit children take it upon themselves to help her feel better. One by one they bring her treats from around the house, including a steaming cup of hot chocolate, a cuddly toy, a good book, and a shiny necklace. Before long, Mama Rabbit begins to feel better even without the help of medicine.

Picture-book legend Anita Lobel returns with this sweet and funny follow-up to 10 Hungry Rabbits.

The clan from 10 Hungry Rabbits: Counting and Color Concepts returns in this sweet story about how the young ones cheer up their sick mother. The concepts run deeper in this follow-up, as readers get an affecting look at sibling compassion and cooperation, family cohesiveness, and parent-child love. Since Papa has gone out to fetch medicine for his wife, one rabbit decides, “We have to cheer up Mama,” and the others agree. In stacked images on each page, Lobel’s richly patterned, folkloric gouache and watercolor art reveals where each rabbit finds his or her gift for the bedridden mother (a cup of hot chocolate from the kitchen, a flower from a vase, a necklace from a jewelry box) and then shows an increasingly healthy-looking Mama welcoming each therapeutic offering. The pared-down text plays a secondary role to the pictures, which feature some sly flourishes: the “good book” one bunny brings to Mama is a copy of 10 Hungry Rabbits, and the bunnies’ final present for their mother is a show in which each rabbit pops out of a magician’s top hat. Ages 3–7. (Feb.)
