This is a great read-aloud storybook for parents and children alike. It has funny, clever, rhyming text about a little rabbit who learns that some things aren’t as scary as they first seem and a bad-tempered bear who isn’t as grizzly as he would like to think. Complemented by some wonderfully eye-catching and humorous illustrations you won’t get much better than this.
