I'm in love with this book. We all can use a reminder that sometimes the best way to show you love someone is to be with them in silence until they are ready to talk about their problems. But don't worry - this isn't an overly preachy book - it's super cute and a joy to read with young kids.

The animals in this book represent responses many of us have to someone telling us they have a problem. We often try to solve it for them. In many cases, people just need someone to listen. That's what the rabbit does. The rabbit doesn't rush to try to change Taylor's feelings, but rather, lets T... Read More »

The animals in this book represent responses many of us have to someone telling us they have a problem. We often try to solve it for them. In many cases, people just need someone to listen. That's what the rabbit does. The rabbit doesn't rush to try to change Taylor's feelings, but rather, lets Taylor go through the process of feeling and reacting to the situation himself. The rabbit provides support without telling Taylor what to do. I think this book provides a great lesson to people of all ages: to allow others to learn to work through issues on their own, but without making them feel alone.

Warning: warm fuzzies galore! You might want to keep a box of tissues close by as you read this touching story of a rabbit who knows just how to help support someone who is upset. Not only would this book make a great choice for one-on-one reading between child and caregiver, or a good pick for Family Storytime, but I'd use this book as an allegory for grownups in an HR training. We all could use a reminder that sometimes it's best to just be fully present for others and to let them work out their feelings in their own time.
