The Rabbit Listened
By Cori Doerrfeld
Published by Penguin Young Readers Group
A moving and universal picture book about empathy and kindness, sure to soothe heartaches big and small.
When something sad happens, Taylor doesn’t know where to turn. All the animals are sure they have the answer. The chicken wants to talk it out, but Taylor doesn’t feel like chatting. The bear thinks Taylor should get angry, but that’s not quite right either. One by one, the animals try to tell Taylor how to act, and one by one they fail to offer comfort. Then the rabbit arrives. All the rabbit does is listen . . . which is just what Taylor needs.
