Rabbit's Gift: A Fable from China

by George Shannon
Illustrated by Laura Dronzek

Published by Harcourt, 2007
32 pages
ISBN: 9780152060732

Ages 3-7

Snow is coming, coming soon, and Rabbit must hurry to his home before it falls. First he must find food, and he happily unearths not one but two turnips! Thinking that Donkey might not have found a meal before the snowfall, Rabbit deposits the extra vegetable as a gift on her doorstep. Donkey, returning home with a potato, decides to pass the turnip on to Goat for the very same reason. The circular fable continues until the turnip returns to Rabbitís doorstep. Not knowing who to thank, Rabbit brings his friends together to share it. Gorgeous paintings reflect the warmth of each animalís generous gesture in a winning tale that will delight and satisfy.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
