Tiny Rabbit's Big Wish by Margarita Engle


Tiny Rabbit's Big Wish by Margarita Engle

Tiny rabbit dreams of growing as big as the forest and as tall as the trees, yet no matter how hard he wishes, he stays the same small size. But in a jungle filled with beasts both big and small, perhaps being tiny is just right! Inspired by the rhythms and humour of Afro-Cuban folktales, award-winning author Margarita Engle wrote this charming picture book in honour of every child's favorite springtime animal.


Engle's rich adjectives and repetition make this an enjoyable read aloud.

A sensitive reminder that talents and abilities come in all shapes and, yes, sizes.
