Rabbit & Bear: Rabbit’s Bad Habits

Julian Gough and Jim Field


Rabbit & Bear: Rabbit’s Bad Habits is so much more than a newer reader’s story book! There’s the science, the carefully crafted characters and an authentic setting. This is a jam-packed, laugh out loud, learn a lot reading adventure! What’s more it seems that we are not the only ones learning something new, or something seemingly unpalatable…
Is it possible that Bear’s broken hibernation might be an opportunity? Furthermore, could it be that in making a snowman with Rabbit, there’s a chance for some real companionship? Or might Rabbit’s competitiveness prove his undoing? It would seem that Rabbit’s going to be in need of Bear if Wolf scents he’s about. Then again, Rabbit’s pessimism might need Bear’s sunniness.
Julian Gough and Jim Field have created a realistic and enticing setting and characters in this title. While we might fret about Rabbit’s behaviour, we recognise his energy and determination, alongside Bear’s patience and warmth. Thereafter, these are characters whom we champion. Yet along the way, they make us laugh and cheer. While the story writing is outstanding, the pictures draws us into a valley that seems known to only the characters, so that the shadows and lines, expressions and views are a window to a hidden world.
Bookwagon loves this opening title to a superb series, which is next followed by the equally funny Rabbit & Bear: The Pest in the Nest. Bookwagon recommends Rabbit & Bear: Rabbit’s Bad Habits to our newer, less confident readers.
