Reader Reviews for "A Surprise for Grandmother Rabbit"

Reviewed by Peggy Williams 2/22/2010
The book, A Surprise for Grandmother Rabbit, by Barbara Smith, is a delightful book about a good hearted little rabbit named Skipper. As he goes about running an errand for his mother, he ran into several friends who asked for a slice of the Cherry Pie he was taking to his Grandmother. Each friend has a special gift to give him in return as he goes on his way.

By the time he reached Grandmother’s house, her pie was only half a pie. He felt bad about giving away her pie. Then he remembered the gifts his friends gave him. He gave these to his Grandmother as well. Grandmother was wise. She appreciated Skipper’s big and good heart. She appreciated his willingness to share. But she realized that she needed to teach little Skipper to wait and get permission before giving something away that belonged to someone else. So she made an agreement with him to wait until he got to her house the next time before sharing with his friends and she would help him. Skipper liked the agreement and seemed relieved to know what to do next time.

Grandmother helped little Skipper feel better about the situation by sharing her plans for all the gifts his friends had given him. He seemed surprised and thankful that she had a good plan for each gift.

This little book teaches children several values such as honoring his mother, being friendly with others, respecting his grandmother’s request, sharing, helping. Little Skipper learns the lesson and skill of asking permission and respecting others property.

The book is full of discussion material for the parent or grandparent to share with the child after reading the book.

Sharing is always good, right? Follow Skipper as he makes his way to Grandmother Rabbit's house with her freshly-baked, cherry pie and find out. All along the way, he is tempted by friends to trade away the pie one piece at a time... A great lesson on sharing and responsibility. The bright, colorful illustrations will keep your children in rapt attention until the very end. A great book!
