This book was a nice book where a small bunny is learning how to hop and bounce; he finds it difficult and frustrating and wants to give up. But his Mama Bunny shows him other smaller 'children' and things their Mama or Daddy's are teaching the frog, and the mouse etc. He stays with learning and eventually does learn how to hop and bounce the way he wants. He says "I wonder if the others are staying with it also and learnt" and the illustrations shows them doing it. My 3 year old gra ...more

Oops-a-daisy by Claire Freedman was a Harriet favorite over the summer. It's the story of a young rabbit learning how to hop. Each time she hops she falls over one way or another.

The accompanying illustrations are adorable and charming. They capture the mother's loving patience and Daisy's range of emotions from determination, frustration, and confidence.

Daisy learning to hop is much like a young child learning to walk. Harriet was reading the book in the final run up to her October dance recita

Sweet book with adorable illustrations.
Daisy the rabbit is learning how to hop, but is having trouble. Mama teaches her about perseverance by having her keep on trying and showing Daisy that others struggle in learning new things too.
Both my boys (ages 2 and 5) really enjoy this book.

The mommy bunny is teaching her baby how to hop (and Oops she falls a lot) and encourages to keep trying and working hard to do it one day. I like this book and when I read it to Ethan I tell him that one day he will walk too.

I’ve been a writer for over 15 years now, but it wasn’t planned!

I had a variety of jobs, including secretary, trainee buyer at Harrods, dental nurse, production assistant in a reprographic and printing company and various others.

I began to write after joining a creative writing class. I had no success with article writing, or short stories, or fiction, but the first children’s story I wrote, for a
