Product Details


*”Readers will feel the warmth of friendship and the wonder of the world as well. Stunning.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“An enchanting examination of the pleasure reaped from cultivating imagination, friendship, and memory.” —School Library Journal, starred review

*”Marcero works magic with prismatic watercolors, ink, and pencil, as her light-filled illustrations chronicle the young rabbits’ exploits and their appreciative wonder of the world around them . . . This joyful account of friendship will charm readers with the notion of capturing wind or a rainbow in a jar, but its deeper message of maintaining relationships over a distance will comfort those who have moved or know someone who has.” —Booklist, starred review

“Marcero provides a metaphor for the importance of capturing fleeting moments, and an image of a friendship that overcomes separation.” —Publishers Weekly

“Cozy yet also endearingly offbeat. This could make an interesting partner to Denos’ Here and Now in a celebration of moments, or it could couple with Doerrfeld’s Goodbye, Friend! Hello, Friend! for a discussion of how sharing feeds a friendship.” —BCCB

“This is a book about friendship and how true bonds can transcend geographical distance. This is one to remember when a child experiences the unexpected departure of a friend.” —School Library Connection
