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.

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!

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.

Any of the Howard B Wigglebottom books you will not regret checking out-owning. They are all great at helping teach children life's lessons through a Bunny Rabbit that is their age and deals with issues just like them.

In this one Howard LOVES to sing but when his friends tease him about it he feels embarrassed and stops doing something he loves. But when his Grandpa teaches him that he needs to do what his heart feels like doing; things turn out just fine.

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 was a really cute book. I thought the moral of the story, about being yourself and doing what you like no matter what others thing, was a really good moral for kids. The pictures were vibrant and enticing. It was a really well done book that my daughter and I both enjoyed. Looking forward to reading more about Howard B. Wigglebottom.

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.
