Illustrated by Rebecca Crane

My Very Own Space Synopsis

A little rabbit is trying to read his book in peace, but there's so much going on around him! Maybe he needs some space just for himself... With minimal text accompanying beautiful and sweet illustrations, this charming picture book explores ideas of personal space and sharing in a way that even very young children can enjoy.

My Very Own Space Press Reviews

A JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD SELECTION [...] the uncomplicated text and the humorous art combine to create a story appealing to all. [...] A sweetly balanced affirmation of the child's right to space. --Kirkus Reviews [...] affectionately explores the way children handle seesawing emotions and competing desires for privacy and companionship. --Publisher's Weekly [Rebecca Crane's] warm palette and round, expressive bunny characters flop pleasantly around the pages, and almost every scene is crowded with rabbits engaging in a wide variety of activities. Little ones who crave privacy will relate to Jack's plight, and his ultimate realization that company can be nice, too, is a lovely lesson. --Booklist A particularly great read for children welcoming a new sibling, or starting school or nursery, Rebecca Crane's colourful illustrations have plain backgrounds, so can easily feel relevant to a child's own scenario. [...] fun and thoughtful [...] --The Guardian Tackling the traditional out and back quest for personal identity in a relatable, tangible and enjoyable representation, Goodhart's and Crane's My Very Own Space is a super-engaging and thoughtful book, just fine for a quick and casual read, but better for a lingering one. --New York Journal of Books The perfect book for everyone that sometimes needs a little quiet and their own space. --Jesica DeHart, The Wandering Bookseller What a little rabbit wants a space all his own, he creates a very big circle around himself to keep everyone out. Does it work? Does this make rabbit happy? With great text and illustrations this will be a fun book to read at storytime. --Nanci Booher, Multnomah County Library
