CLIP Review: Little Rabbit Goes to School

Author & Illustrator:  Harry Horse
Ages:  4 - 7

When our youngest son left for college 3 years ago his three older brothers asked if he was planning on taking "Ducky" with him. Then they all roared with laughter! Jordan was not amused. Probably because until he was in the second grade, Ducky had been hidden in his pillowcase and snuck to every overnight and campout he had ever attended. 

So if you have a little one heading off to school for the first time, and there's a "security" issue involved, this is the book for you. Mama doesn't think wooden horses go to school, but Little Rabbit says, "Charlie Horse wants to go." But during storytime Charlie gallops over the teacher's shoes. During music he dances acrosss the floor. And when the class makes a cake - oh my! he jumps right into the batter! Just when Little Rabbit thinks his problems can't become any worse, he remembers the sweetest thing that his teacher taught him that morning. You'll have to read the story to find out what it is that saves Little Rabbit.

Just as Jordan kept Ducky safely packed away in his closet here at home, Little Rabbit decided that Charlie Horse was too naughty for school and needed to stay home with Mama. After all, the best thing about a new school are all your new friends!
