Description

A little girl discusses with Mr Rabbit the problem of what to give her mother as a birthday present. They decide to find her something in all her favourite colours and wander through the countryside assessing what can be given as a gift and what cannot - so a yellow banana is chosen rather then the yellow sun. After a long day of hunting the little girl finally has the perfect present. This is a beautifully illustrated, lyrical tale with plenty of repetition. The text imprints itself on children's minds once they have heard it read aloud and the dialogue offers the possibility of sharing the reading by taking either the part of Mr Rabbit or the little girl.
