It is Little Rabbit’s birthday and his family surprises him with wrapped presents and a special trip to Rabbit World Theme Park.
Mama Rabbit packs a special birthday picnic and the family sets off for the amusement park with Little Rabbit and his red balloon leading the way. Little Rabbit is excited by the noise, color, and crowded activity of the park. He insists he is a big rabbit now and ignores his parents’ warnings to stay close. But when he suddenly finds himself all alone, he doesn’t feel quite so grown up anymore.
Harry Horse’s colorful and buoyant illustrations vividly depict Little Rabbit’s growing excitement and bring to life the infectious atmosphere of the amusement park. Readers will cheer Little Rabbit’s triumphant reunion with his beloved family and will identify easily with the young character’s conflicting desire for independence and his need of loving supervision.

LITTLE RABBIT LOST follows Little Rabbit as he celebrates his birthday with his family. Little Rabbit wakes up feeling grown up. When he opens his presents and his enormous red balloon, he learns his family has a surprise for him- they are taking him to Rabbit World! He is excited to go and leads the way, carrying his big, red balloon. His parents warn him not to wander too far ahead, but Little Rabbit believes he is a big rabbit now.

However, at Rabbit World, Little Rabbit learns that he is still too little to do many of the rides. He finds a bouncy castle and is excited when he can enjoy it. However, when he is done, he notices he can’t find his family. After searching, he is luckily reunited with his family, as his mother sees his big, red balloon. His birthday ends on a good note with a surprise birthday cake that his mother packed.

What I loved: The illustrations are classic and lovely. From the full page Rabbit World to Little Rabbit’s cute outfit and big balloon, the pictures are just gorgeous. Parents and young readers can enjoy looking at all the detail and many lovely components of each image from the rides to the other rabbits. The text is well written and captures the feeling of being big yet little that many children experience as they grow. Getting lost is not uncommon for young children, and this book provides the opportunity to discuss what children should do in the case that it happens, which can be a really valuable learning tool.

What left me wanting more: As a small thing, I notice mother rabbit is the one who must pack the meals and also find Little Rabbit. I love to see more variety in the parents who do domestic tasks, so it would have been nice to have both parents or Papa Rabbit pack the meal, but this is certainly a small thing.

Final verdict: With lovely illustrations and an easily understood storyline, LITTLE RABBIT LOST is an engaging story about feeling little and big at the same time and about getting lost and found. This story can be a valuable tool for teaching about safety as well as being just an enjoyable read.
