Duck! Rabbit!
Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

This is a story of two people looking at the same object and seeing two completely different things. The two people argue about what it is until they convince each other to change their original opinion. This book is funny and it shows that you need compelling evidence with for your argument to be successful. I would use this book in the classroom to have students develop compelling evidence to go along with their arguments of whether it was a duck or a rabbit.

It's All About Perspective.
Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

This book turned out to be a wonderful way to show perspective in the classroom. It really drives home the fact that we all see something different, but that does not mean we cannot get along. Students could play the game, “I’m Thinking of Something" and use words that describe shape, color, and size to give clues about the object. Students could also use cardboard boxes to come up with something that they see.

I would like to thank the author Todd Strader for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

I have always loved reading books that deal with animals and when I got a free copy of “Rabbit’s Snow Day” from the author Todd Strader, I was really excited to check this book out since I love reading books about rabbits! “Rabbit’s Snow Day” which is written by Todd Strader along with artwork by Penny Collins is a truly cute story about how rabbits survive in the winter that children will definitely enjoy!

Basically, the plot of this book is about the rabbits trying to survive the winter and about how they try to stay out of the fox and the humans’ way while the winter is raging away and this is all told in a poetic narrative.

Wow! This book was a really cute read, especially if you love rabbits (like myself) and Todd Strader did a fantastic job at writing this book as the book is told in a poetic narrative that gives the book a unique and beautiful tone. I also loved the information that Todd Strader provided about rabbits at the end of the book as I wanted to learn more about rabbits in general and how they live in the wilderness and survive the dangers of the wilderness. Penny Collins’ artwork is gorgeous to look at as all the animals are drawn realistically, especially the rabbits themselves and I enjoyed seeing the winter atmosphere of the artwork as snow covers everything, from the ground to the trees, and all the snow covering up the pages give the artwork a beautiful and peaceful atmosphere. 


The reason why I gave this book a four-star rating was because I felt that the story was a bit too short and I wanted a much longer story on the rabbits’ adventures during the winter season and their encounters with the fox and the humans. I also felt that a good majority of this book was focused more on giving out information about rabbits in general rather than focusing on giving us a story about the rabbits and their time spent surviving the winter season.

Overall, “Rabbit’s Snow Day” is a cute book for anyone who loves reading about rabbits and loves reading about winter as a whole. I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book.

Rabbit the Autobiography of Ms. Pat
Rabbit: The Autobiography of Ms. Pat - Patricia Williams,Jeannine Amber
Rabbit definitely got knocked down quite a few times before she saw the light. She holds nothing back when she talks about her life and how she seemed to follow in her mom’s shoes until her time in jail when she met other women who were like her. She wanted to change, she swore she was going to change but when she was released, it was too easy to fall back into her old ways. She needed a nudge, a threat, a constant reminder of the potential that she had within her to change. That prod and force was Michael.
Growing up in the 1980’s, she was being raised by a single mother with four other siblings. In the hood, her mother liked her alcohol and her pot, her children were secondary. Their grandfather took the family in and Rabbit didn’t realize how well she had it until he was hauled off to jail. Her grandfather residence was actually a bootlegging house where he mixed his potions and individuals drank until they passed out. By the time Rabbit was fifteen, she had two children under the age of two, she was single with no education past the seventh grade. She wanted more for herself and her children but how was she going to get it?
As I read this novel, I could feel the struggle that Rabbit was battling. She felt locked within her situation and couldn’t see a way out. She wanted more for herself and her children but she didn’t know how to get herself out of the spiral she falling into. She knew she needed money but without an education she couldn’t get a deceit job so she did what she saw others doing. She couldn’t think outside her world, she didn’t know how. When she landed in jail, she was exposed to others who gave her the tools to look outside her world, to be resourceful so she could find other solutions but when she was released, she was delivered right back into her old world where she already had a pattern. She needed something or someone to push her off course.
This was an interesting read and I appreciated Rabbit’s honesty to show her readers the life that she led. I found myself agreeing to some of the notions that Rabbit emphasized in this novel, she brought up some fantastic points. I thought Rabbit was a kind soul from the beginning but her situation didn’t allow for it to be revealed until later in life.

Alice in the Country of Hearts: My Fanatic Rabbit (manga, vol. 2) story by QuinRose, art by Delico Psyche, scenario by Shinotsuki, translated by Ajino Hirami
Alice in the Country of Hearts: My Fanatic Rabbit, Vol. 2 -

Peter saves Alice from being beheaded by Vivaldi, and Elliot takes Alice back to the mansion. Alice and Elliot are suddenly a lovey dovey couple, but things take a turn for the worse when Alice spends time with Ace and Julius. She learns about the clocks, and that Elliot

was once in prison for irreparably breaking his friend's clock. Elliot gets mad at Alice for being chummy with Julius, the man he hates, so Alice decides that she should drink the vial and go back to her world and her sister. However, Nightmare intervenes with a vision of Elliot killing himself after Alice leaves, so she decides to stay.

(spoiler show)

This started off as a mediocre series, featuring one of my least favorite Alice in the Country of pairings, and then took a turn for the much worse. First we have attempted rape on Elliot's part -

he begins to force himself on Alice in anger after she spends time with Julius, his enemy.

(spoiler show)

Then we have Nightmare's emotional manipulation of her.

Alice was going to leave Wonderland for good, and for a very good reason (a borderline abusive boyfriend). In order to stop her, Nightmare produced a vision of Elliot killing himself out of thin air. It reminded me of the horrible boyfriend a family member of mine used to have, who'd try to get her to stay with him by telling her he'd kill himself if she left.

(spoiler show)

Not only that, the way the story was told was choppy and just plain bad - it went from Elliot taking Alice back to the mansion to them being a couple in the space of a page or so. I also felt that the artwork took a bit of a nosedive, becoming scratchier and less appealing.

If this were a horror series, it'd be one thing, but these stories are supposed to be romances, albeit occasionally kind of dark ones. This was garbage.
