Have You Ever Noticed That Rabbits Don't Sing?
Rabbits may not sing, but they sure can dance in this book--precisely the point of the story. A rabbit longs to put his feelings into voice, but he has a hopeless lack of talent. This makes him so angry that he begins to stomp and twirl, until the entire forest realizes that he can ``sing'' with his feet. Both animals and trees are happily anthropomorphized in the illustrations, which convey sappy moments as well as charming ones. The verse is awkward, but both the pictures and the lesson of the book have merit. No ages given. (June)
