Very much in the spirit of "just so stories", mixed with a bit of Native American lore. Fun.

I really enjoyed reading about Jackrabbit. This story was engaging and clearly explained in a fun way why jackrabbits have such long ears. The illustrations were well drawn and really added to the story and helped the reader to visualize the words.

This book tells the story of how jackrabbits got their long ears. It features many different animals that are found in the desert and describes their features. This book is engaging and humorous. It would be great for a lesson on folklore, or even a lesson on desert animals.

This is an original pourquoi tale (a story that explains how something came to be) that brings in many desert animals and calls attention to their attributes.
