Fox and Rabbits Garden (A Tale of the Rabbit-less Stew) By Laurel Heger , Illustrated by Monette Pangan
I like clever writing. Kids like clever at least mine do. This book is suitable for age’s pre-k to 7. I do think adults and older children would enjoy reading Ms. Heger’s books to younger ones. The book is about a rabbit working in its garden and making a stew. Along comes a fox thinking this stew in progress would make a good meal for him, when he can add the rabbit to the pot. The rabbit out smarts the fox, he encourages the fox to assist preparing the pot of stew, with kindness and friendship. While you are reading the exchange of the rabbit and fox you are also getting a recipe to make a stew or soup. One spoonful of the stew the fox is surprised the rabbit-less stew is good. The book ends with tips for growing vegetables that can be added to a stew. The illustrations are bright and delightful by Monette Pangan This book is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
This is book two in this series of Rabbit and Fox. The book starts out with Rabbit and Fox tending their garden and picking fresh beautiful cranberries to add to the pantry supply. As they are relaxing after a day of work they hear a noise in the pantry. They find a curious hedgehog looking for an easy meal. He has fallen in a basket of eggs and then slips into the new supply of cranberries. Rabbit is upset that much of the supplies have been depleted and the mess they have to clean up in the pantry. He does not remove or yell at the hedgehog, but instead decides to assist and clean the fellow from all the goo on his body. Hedge Hog, I am sure will become a new character in future stories. These stories are like fables they give you a hidden message. Even though a mistake is made, kindness not anger is the best response. At the end is a recipe for cranberry sauce. I can see why Fox and Rabbit has been selected as, Goodwill Ambassadors for Seattle Farmers Market Alliance, The farmers market in Shelton, Washington.
I look forward to more of Fox and Rabbits adventures with their garden. Book is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
