Those Pesky Rabbits product reviews

All Mr Bear wants is to be left alone, but his rabbit neighbours just don't get it! They keep on asking annoying things, like can they borrow honey or does he want to swap books? When grumpy refusals don't work, he decides to scare away those pesky rabbits. Can kindness make Mr Bear see it's time for a change?

Mr 5 chose this book from a pile of other books. The bear on the front grabbed his attention. It is interesting that the nice earthy colours of the illustrations won over the bright exciting colours of some of the other books. This goes to show that not everything should be about bright, primary colours.

The little mouse on the front cover is also to be found in various places throughout the book. We noticed it on the front cover and then started to see him as we moved though the book. We then flicked back through the pages we had already read and noticed that the was on most pages doing a variety of things quietly in the background. He almost tells his own story as the book progresses.

The book features a bear and his neighbours. Initially, he thinks he doesn't need anyone. He pushes away friendship and refuses to help others. In the end, he learns that friends are valuable and that he can get a lot more joy out of building the relationship. The book provides a valuable platform to discuss with children the topics of friendships and how to treat others.

We enjoyed the repetitiveness of the "Knock, knock" in the book. The children joined in with me as I pointed towards the words while I was reading it. Mr 5 has been learning about reading the bold words in a book in a louder and stronger manner. He enjoyed picking out the words for me to emphasise.

There are fantastic illustrations in the book. The facial and body expressions on the characters allow the young reader to learn to read people and how they are feeling. Both of my children particularly notices when the bear was angry and was showing his teeth. The colour choice for the page also shows the mood of the page.

As we finished reading the book Mr 5 left us with a comment - "In the end they became friends. It was good because if you don't have friends, you feel really lonely". I think he got the main theme of the book!
