Guys, I get to read a lot of good books here at the store. It’s one of the (many) perks to working at Kids Nook. But this little gem by Julia Donaldson is definitely in my Top 5 favorites. Rhyming Rabbit may seem like a silly book designed with glitter to attract readers, but the story is perfect for those of us who love what words can do.

After a few false starts, the rabbit winds up in a meadow on a beautiful moon-lit night. He begins to make a poem about it, but something might be missing…
