Item Description...
Outline ReviewA pair of scissors and a pencil, each using its own special skills, decides to make rabbits one morning in Leo Lionni's classic 1982 fable, reprinted in this sturdy board book edition for the youngest reader. The pencil-drawn rabbit and scissor-crafted collage bunny promptly become fast friends. When they grow hungry, they turn to their creators for paper carrots, which they enjoy heartily... until they come upon a real carrot (they know it's real because it casts a shadow). What happens next will surely enchant readers of all ages.

The brilliant Lionni amuses himself--and his readers--with this playful send-up of the creative process. Each bunny is unique in its own right, skillfully and yet simply designed--the wonderful kind of images readers never forget. Four-time Caldecott Honor winner Lionni wrote more than 40 children's picture books in his lifetime, including well-loved classics Frederick and Swimmy. (Ages 1 to 4) --Emilie Coulter

Product Description

A taste of the real carrot leads to a wonderful surprise ending that is sure to delight very young children.

Lionni launched his career as an author/illustrator of books for children in 1959. Originally developed from a story he had improvised for his grandchildren during a dull train ride, Little Blue and LittleYellow was the first of what is now a long list of children’s picture books, including four Caldecott Honor Books.

Leo Lionni wrote and illustrated more than 40 highly acclaimed children’s books. He received the 1984 American Institute of Graphic Arts Gold Medal and was a four-time Caldecott Honor Winner—for Inch by Inch, Frederick, Swimmy, and Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse.

Leo Lionni died in October of 1999 at his home in Tuscany, Italy, at the age of 89.

"Let's Make Rabbits" can be as Simple or Complicated as You Want  Nov 13, 2007
"Let's Make Rabbits" is a book I've been reading off-and-on to my children since my eldest was two. And what amazes me is that every so often, even after five years of reading it, I can still have an 'Oh-Wow' moment in which I discover some new aspect of the book that that hadn't occurred to me before.

At first, of course, I just read the story. We pointed out the names of objects and colors. Then when my children were a little older we talked about how the two bunnies were friends even though they were different. Then even later we digressed and discussed how the pen and the scissors both wanted to make bunnies and carrots and how they both succeeded even though they took different paths to do so.

Then, just yesterday, it dawned on me that part of what Lionni was demonstrating was 'space relations'. That line drawings didn't have shadows, whereas the 'real' objects did. It was rather effortless to explain this to my five and seven year olds, and to tie this particular lesson into my second grader's geometry.

I bring this all up because I want you to know that if you buy this book you aren't just buying it for the baby and toddler years. And that there is a depth of purpose here that you just don't get in most other books. Highly recommend this one. There is just a lot to spark a child's -- and a mom's-- imagination.

Five Stars ::: "Lets Make Rabbits" is one of those books that unfolds with each reading. Even my own 'take' on it has changed over the years. Good Read-aloud. Just-right artwork. No wonder Lionni has won so many awards.

Beautiful, simple, creative  Apr 25, 2004
This is another great book for toddlers by Lionni. It encourages children to imagine and demonstrates different methods to express ideas on paper. My daughter, who is very verbal for a 26-month-old, made a strong connection with "shadows" after reading this book and began pointing them out everywhere.
Let�s Make Rabbits by Leo Lionni  Jun 19, 2002
Let's Make Rabbits is a clever boardbook by Caldecott-honored artist Leo Lionni. It begins with a pair of scissors and a pencil that decide to make rabbits. The story then follows the activities and discoveries of these two rabbits. Appropriate for infants and toddlers, the book offers illustrations with clean lines, color, and warm, likeable character drawings that enhance the story. The book is durable enough for library circulation, but the illustrations may be too small for story time listeners to see from a distance. It is best suited for small group reading.
This book is a good tool for building observation skills. The juxtaposition of monochromatic and multi-colored and one-dimensional versus multi-dimensional objects allows the child to observe differences and similarities. This would also be an excellent platform to begin simple discussions about animals, their body parts, colors, and the food they eat. The book could also inspire simple craft projects about animals.
Let's Make Rabbits  Jan 28, 2002
This book really captured the imagination of our playgroup.
The idea that rabbits could be made from paper and a pencil
really got the children going. After reading the book we
used colored paper and made our own rabbits. This is one of
our favorite books by Leo Lionni and we are happy to see it
back in print.
