Publisher's Description

Mama Rabbit is too sick to leave her bed. Poor Mama! When Papa Rabbit leaves home to get her some medicine, the ten little rabbit children take it upon themselves to help her feel better. One by one they bring her treats from around the house, including a steaming cup of hot chocolate, a cuddly toy, a good book, and a shiny necklace. Before long, Mama Rabbit begins to feel better even without the help of medicine.

Picture-book legend Anita Lobel returns with this sweet and funny follow-up to 10 Hungry Rabbits.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly, November 18, 2013:
"Readers get an affecting look at sibling compassion and cooperation, family cohesiveness, and parent-child love...In stacked images on each page, Lobel’s richly patterned, folkloric gouache and watercolor art reveals where each rabbit finds his or her gift for the bedridden mother."

Kirkus Reviews, December 15, 2013:
"The conceit of a role reversal that finds children caring for a parent feels fresh, and Lobel’s soft style and Easter-egg palette of gouache and watercolors create a gentle and inviting lapine world...A sweet little family tale."

The Horn Book, January/February 2014:
"Vibrant colors in a typically lush palette send a reassuring message of cheer and optimism, and the small trim size is just right for the intimate story."

Booklist, January 1, 2014:
"In the charming acrylic-and-watercolor artwork, the helpers are intent on their tasks...The text is short and the illustrations are long on color, lively patterns, and interesting details."

Bulletin of the Center for Chidlren's Books, February 2014:
"Lobel’s vibrantly hued gouache and watercolor illustrations are warm and cozy...Fans of Lobel’s 10 Hungry Rabbits may particularly enjoy this new bunny outing."
