“This simple story will be a good discussion starter for readers dealing with the inevitability of childhood fights. Uncluttered, stylistic illustrations first feature leaden skies during the fight and separation but subtly transition to happy dawn colors after the two make up. For fun, readers can trace each rabbit’s path on the endpaper map. Will ease little ones through the heat of a fight to the joys of reconciliation.”

Love Four Learning
“I like the way this story conveys the physical effects you may feel after a disagreement with a friend. It shows both Grey and Brown Rabbit not knowing what to do to fix their friendship and yet by admitting responsibility and saying two words, forgiveness can repair. A sweet social and emotional learning book.”
