Another fantastic book reviewed by my daughter! My daughter is 9, and I realize that she is technically older than the targeted ages of 3-8, but my daughter is able to review this book in light of that age range.

First of all, my daughter sometimes struggles with comprehension, but she was able to summarize this book very easily. That makes me feel good as a mother. She loves reading these "bunny" books, as she calls them, and I am always pleased that she is willing to do it for me.

This is only the 3rd book I have read in this series, but I love it. I love the story and the simple lessons and morals that are taught. I had a patron today tell me that she was looking for a book about self esteem. A girl in her daughter car pool makes fun and belittles everyone, the mom needed a resource to talk to her kid about being proud of who you are. I wish this book would have been checked in at the time because it drove home that it is okay to be your own person and don't stop doing s...more
Howard the bunny liked to dance but his friends laughed at him. Howard decided he didn't want to dance anymore and he was going to try and find something he was good at the other people approved of. But Howard was not very good at other things and was upset that he wasn't the best. He talked with his grandpa who told him that he should do what makes him happy and not listen to other people who try and make fun of him for what he likes to do. In the end, Howard DANCES!

A guidance counselor shared this book with the kindergarten class I substitute taught it today. I thought it was an adorable book! The kids could relate to Howard B. Wigglebottom and shared what there favorite thing to do is. The children learned not to make fun of others and that other people can feel ashamed and picked on when they do something different. A great book to have in a teacher collection!
This is one of those wonderful picture books that has a great moral lesson in it. Howard B. Wigglebottom loves to dance but when the other kids at school make fun of him, he stops dancing. The Howard eventually listens to heart and goes back to dancing because that's what HE wants to do.

This book encourages children to be themselves, to do what they want to do! It's a great book to read to children to increase their self-esteem. It's also a lot of fun because it's about a rabbit that loves to dance.
Howard loves to dance but is worried what others will think. He tries other things but in the end finds that it better to be who he is! A guide for discussion is included inthe back.
Another great little book teaching kids to be themselves and proud of it. Creative illustrations to be sure. I look forward to reading more of Howard B. Wigglebottom.
This book is great for children to learn about bullying. This book teaches children everyone is important and good at something.
We read this to Emma...
