Rabbit and Robot the sleepover by Cece Bell

This is one of those special little books - very simple to read - but also very satisfying.  Rabbit and Robot The sleepover should go on your list of books to share with a young child who is just beginning to master reading. If you love Frog and Toad by Arnold Lobel you will certainly want to meet these new friends.  They are an odd couple but tonight everyone (the reader and characters) will discover the value of a true friend.

Rabbit and Robot are very different.  Rabbit likes pizza, playing Go Fish and watching television. Robot likes nuts and bolts on his pizza and prefers to play Old Maid.

Rabbit has made a list for the sleepover.  His list is very prescriptive but Rabbit will need to learn some tough lessons about compromise.  In four little episodes the two friends DO find a way to enjoy their first sleepover but the way the evening pans out may surprise you just as it surprises Rabbit.

This book was a worthy honor book in the Theodor Seuss Geisel awards. You can read a little more about this book here. Or you might like to click the quotes below.
