How often do you finish reading a book with your nearly 8 year old son, and the first thing you both want to do is hug each other? I'd say not often, but that was the case with this amazing story about a rabbit who learns how to open his heart and let love in.

Edward the china rabbit has the perfect life. Beautiful home, an owner who provides for his every need, everything a toy could ever want. But one day, Edward gets lost and suddenly, he needs help. He's on his own. And he is completely at the whims of whomever decides to pick him up and bring him along.

I don't want to spoil more of the story, but trust me - it's lovely. I did have tears two times because there is saddness and there is joy. And you know what? My boy didn't even ask me why I was crying. I think that's because he got it. Five stars from me.
