Sweet, peaceful, comforting story ...

Douglas Florian chronicles the doings of rabbits in his rhyming picture-book, which opens: "The habits of rabbits are many, not few, / with plenty of things that they love to do! / There's waking up early to see the sun rise, / and yawning at dawn while rubbing your eyes." From smelling the flowers in spring to swimming in summer, the rabbits enjoy the pleasures of their world, culminating each day with the best habit of all: "One habit of rabbits that's not to be missed... / is saying "goodnight" with a hug and a kiss."

Pairing a simple text in rhyme with appealing illustrations depicting rabbits engaged in many fun activities, The Wonderful Habits of Rabbits would make an excellent read-aloud selection at bedtime, particularly as it concludes with its leporine characters going to sleep at the end of an active day. I liked the cadence of Florian's poetry, and found Sonia Sánchez's artwork charming. I don't know that this is a particularly memorable picture-book, but it certainly provides a sweet little interlude for young children.
