Snow is coming, coming soon, so Rabbit needs to find food fast. Just in time, a turnip turns up, and a second one, too. Who in the woods wouldn't want to tuck away an extra turnip for the long winter? Not Rabbit. He chooses a different path--and starts a wave of generosity that spreads among all his forest friends.      Admired picture-book team George Shannon and Laura Dronzek have created a heartwarming tale about the true meaning of friendship.      Includes an author's note and a chart that translates the Chinese calligraphy in the book.

Youth Services Book Review

The story in Rabbit s Gift: A Fable from China seemed very familiar to me so I wasn’t surprised to discover in the Author s Note at the end of the book that this is based on a folktale that has been retold around the world.
