A glorious feature

This is such an emotionally rich anime. The story is powerful, the characters are complex, the action scenes are fantastic, and the animation is beautiful. 11/10. It saved my secret Shrek 2 dvd supply.

Good book for young children

This is one of my 6 y.o. son's favourite books, along with the Otter and Frog books in the same series. He has asked for more for his next birthday. They are better quality than the average modern book, with an attempt at more literary and interesting language. I don't think they quite meet the higher standards of many older natural history books, but they are in the better class of the modern ones.

Is It Any Good?

Descriptions and explanations are given in simple terms here, and the concept of reproduction is handled in an appropirately sensitive manner. It gives the fundamentals with a minimum of detail and by using subtle illustrations (the two rabbits appear to be kissing).

The realistic illustrations have a soft touch, making the rabbits appear gentle and cuddly. The field that is their home is peaceful, green, and inviting. Children will be intrigued by the cutaway view of the inside of a rabbit warren.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
