Poor Little Rabbit
Poor Little Rabbit
Written by Jörg Mühle; Translated by Catherine Chidgey
From the author of the worldwide bestseller Tickle My Ears, comes a companion, interactive boardbook about a child helping their rabbit feel better.
Oh no, Little Rabbit has hurt his arm. And there’s blood! Can you help him? Blow gently three times, try a band-aid, a rhyme, but he’s still crying… Let’s give his ears a stroke and wipe his tears. There, all better! Off you go, Little Rabbit!
This sweet and simple boardbook invites children to help Little Rabbit feel better after he has fallen over, by taking part in a fun activity on each page.
Designed to be read aloud together, this fun book teaches toddlers and preschoolers about caring for someone who is hurt, showing empathy and kindness. Young children will delight in their role in putting a smile back on bunny’s face. They’ll know what to do when they fall over now too.
A perfect first book for babies or toddlers.

"This brilliant board book invites a child to “help” someone else who’s hurting — which works wonders to induce a calmer state of mind. Little Rabbit has fallen down and scraped his arm, leaving a red mark. Your toddler is invited to “try blowing on it.” Uh-oh: On the next page, Little Rabbit wails, “There’s blood!” A Band-Aid (with bunnies on it, of course) appears. “Can you put it on?” comes next, but tears still stream down the distressed bunny’s face. And so on, until the bunny feels better — and, chances are, your toddler does too." ~ The New York Times
"Jorg Muhle’s “Poor Little Rabbit” is a perfectly simple, entertaining, and interactive board book for children ages 5 to 6 who love to take care of Little Rabbit. Like Jorg Muhle’s two previous board books, “Poor Little Rabbit” is unreservedly recommended for family, daycare center, preschool, kindergarten, and community library board book collections." ~ Midwest Book Review
"I loved that Mühle weaves interactivity into the tale, inviting kids to blow on the wound, cover it with a bandaid etc. The artwork is perfectly aimed at toddlers too." ~ the Book Chook
"This delightful book and its predecessors appeal on several levels. The interactive components are fun, and foster kindness and empathy. But most of all, I love how empowering they are for children, who help Little Rabbit through experiences and activities they themselves may find challenging." ~ Otago Daily Times
