Little Rabbit Goes to School

Harry Horse

It's time for irrepressible Little Rabbit to start school and discover the opportunities and challenges of independence.

Today is a special day. It is Little Rabbit's first day of school, and he has decided to bring along his favorite toy, Charlie Horse. The busy classroom is crowded with little rabbits and lots of activities.

His new teacher, Mrs. Morag, seems very happy to see him and Charlie Horse--that is, until Charlie Horse disrupts story time, dances on top of the desk during music time, and jumps into the cake batter at snack time. At the end of the day, even Little Rabbit realizes that Charlie Horse may not be ready for school after all.

Harry Horse hits all the right notes in this gently humorous, reassuring story that depicts how children cope with a big transition. Readers will identify with the Little Rabbit's conflicting desires for independence and reassurance.
