The Children’s Book Review
What to Expect: Friendship, sharing, kindness, Thanksgiving
With its focus on celebrating friendship, thoughtfulness, and togetherness, Mrs. Rabbit’s Friendsgiving is another heartwarming story from award-winning children’s author Carole P. Roman.
It looks like Mrs. Rabbit is going to have a lonely Thanksgiving. Even though she has made her famous tasty carrot stew, her big brood of bunnies are all too busy to come home for the holidays. Feeling sad, Mrs. Rabbit sits down to eat alone, but she can’t summon any appetite. But wait – who is that at the door? One by one, Mrs. Rabbit’s friends begin to arrive, bringing their Thanksgiving dinners with them to share with her and each other. Soon, Mrs. Rabbit’s home is bursting with laughter, fun, and friendship. Perhaps this holiday needs a new name?
Shifting readers’ focus from the usual emphasis on eating and consuming, the story instead asks readers to pause and appreciate the things that really make a meal celebratory: good company and the feeling of belonging. Although the characters are all animals, the variety of foods they bring to the table emphasizes diversity in a way often missing from Thanksgiving stories. Simple line illustrations filled with autumn colors complete the festive atmosphere of the story.
Overall, Mrs. Rabbit’s Friendsgiving Dinner is a cheerful and thoughtful addition to any holiday story collection.
