PreS-Gr 1-In a large rabbit family, it can be hard to find a quiet place. Little Rabbit just wants to be left alone to read his book, but there is so much noisy activity going on around him that he can't concentrate. He finally draws a large circle around himself and warns everyone else to keep out. After enjoying his book, Little Rabbit looks up and realizes that he is alone. He can smell something yummy and hear music and laughter, but, sadly, he is not a part of it. When Little Rabbit decides to share his space after all, the other rabbits drag, stretch, and reassemble the line that made up Little Rabbit's circle until everyone is a part of the space and having fun together again. Little Rabbit concludes that he needs a bit of space to himself from time to time. The rabbits are all different sizes and shapes with distinct personalities. Little Rabbit, wearing a red sweater, is easily recognizable, as is the younger sister who follows him everywhere and eventually gets him to open up his circle. VERDICT A general purchase for larger collections everywhere, this is an exuberant read-aloud for one-on-one and small group sharing.-Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GA © Copyright 2017.

Booklist Review
Adorable bunnies jostle for space in this stylish book about quiet time. One bunny, Jack, is tired of all the noise and activity from his neighboring bunnies, since he just wants to read his book, Space Bunny, in peace. A loud SHUSH! goes unheeded, as does the red boundary he uses to mark off the space he's claiming for himself. It's not until Jack makes a racket that the other bunnies finally leave him alone, and his book is exactly as satisfying as he'd hoped. Only, daydreaming about meeting aliens makes him remember all the things he loves about earth, like his other bunny friends. There's not much to the story per se, but Crane's appealing illustrations make up for the slim narrative. Her warm palette and round, expressive bunny characters flop pleasantly around the pages, and almost every scene is crowded with rabbits engaging in a wide variety of activities. Little ones who crave privacy will relate to Jack's plight, and his ultimate realization that company can be nice, too, is a lovely lesson.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2017 Booklist
