Product Description

Andy McGuire, artist and author of the popular Rainy Day Games, presents enchanting art and rhymes to share the story of Remy, the impatient Rhino. When the other animals annoy him, he snorts and charges right for them.

Publisher's Description

Andy McGuire, artist and author of the popular Rainy Day Games, presents enchanting art and rhymes to share the story of Remy, the impatient Rhino. When the other animals annoy him, he snorts and charges right for them.

One day, an aardvark decides not to run, and Remy's horn gets stuck in a tree! The forgiving aardvark gathers termites to slowly eat away the wood and free Remy--not only of his situation but of his impatient ways.

So as Remy experienced strange new sensations
He took a crash course in the virtue of patience.
He waited through rain and he waited through thunder
He waited through birds climbing over and under...
He waited through elephant balancing acts
Until little by little, he learned to relax.

This hilarious story shows children ages 1 to 5 how to get unstuck from their impatience and enjoy peace and the people around them.

    Captivating little book with an important message

    Books are powerful tools in the hands of children. My own five children remain fascinated with books of all types and sizes. Picture books especially captivate my younger children, who often read the same books over and over. Being a Christian parent, I know that Christian books for children are one way of reaching the hearts of my children for Christ. Yet finding good quality, well-written, Christian children's books is not necessarily easy.

    For these reasons, I applaud Andy McGuire's attempt to offer beautiful, captivating story books which enable Christian parents to teach Biblical virtues to their children. In "Remy the Rhino Learns Patience", we are introduced to an impatient, African rhino. He finds out the hard way that angrily insisting on one's own way, doesn't work. Remy finds himself in a pickle and at last learns to relax. The back cover provides the moral: "This entertaining story will help your children learn that anger only makes things worse, and that patience is the key to building friendships and solving problems."

    I was quite impressed with the quality of this little book. I've seen too many, poorly-produced picture books. This book from Harvest House Publishers, however, stands right up there next to books produced by the giant, general market publishers. The cover has a deluxe hardback feel, where it feels a bit soft and welcoming to kids' hands. The pictures are beautifully illustrated, majoring on vivid earth tones. The pictures are life-like as well. The pages are glossy and the book's size is a nice 7 by 7 inches -- perfect for preschool and young elementary kids. This book could easily become a favorite with little hands.

    Andy McGuire's African theme is continued in another title from the "Little Lessons from Our Animal Pals" series: "Eleanor the Hippo Learns to Tell the Truth". The two books together would make a wonderful addition to your kids' reading material.

    When it comes to the message of this book, it is missing any direct reference to the Gospel, and doesn't quote a Bible verse, either. This allows the book to appeal to a wider audience, I suppose. But as a Christian I hoped for more. Still, the book has important lessons to convey to little hearts. As it is, this little book will provide an opportunity to parent your children and talk through the issues of anger and patience. And it certainly has more of a message than many other picture books your children will find. I'm happy to recommend this book for Christian parents and their little children.

    My 3 1/2 year old boy loves this book! He can quote it after reading it only 6 or 7 times. Being patient is important and he loves to pretend the story with his animals.

    I received the book Remy the Rhino Learns Patience (Little Lessons from Our Animal Pals) in the mail as a surprise from the publishing company Harvest House. Since I love to receive little packages in a mail, I couldn't wait to sit down and read this little book. What I found was a surprising little jewel that I know you will want to add to your library as well.

    What I love so much about this book is that it is different than almost all of the books in our library. Originality is hard to find in a children's book search.

    Remy is an angry rhino. Everything in the savanna makes Remy mad. The surrounds and other animals are either too dry or too wet; too grumpy or too proud. One evening life is changed when Remy finds himself in a predicament that requires him to learn patience and lose the attitude.

    This rhyming book is perfect for studying patience and has been added to the ABC Jesus Loves Me 4 Year Curriculum where appropriate. Children will love the animal illustrations and will find humor in Remy's situation. Written for ages 4-8, use Remy as an example of learning to wait without complaining.

    Thank you to Harvest House for giving me the opportunity to review this book.

    I love reading this book to my 3 year old granddaughter and she loves hearing it and seeing the pictures. The pictures are beautiful, and the story is wonderful. It is imaginative and very creative. The author has a fun perspective on life and still gives a great message about learning patience.
