10 Hungry Rabbits by Anita Lobel

10 Hungry Rabbits by Anita Lobel

While planning our Spring story time, I wanted something different. So, I invaded the to-be-cataloged books in Tech Services. I saw this book. Perfect. Have you seen it? It’s small. Certainly too small for story times. Perfect for one-on-one reading, but this has story time written all over it.  It feels like the bare bones of a Stone Soup story; you’ll see.



Mama Rabbit has 10 hungry rabbits and the cupboard is bare...

You’ll notice the numbers on the rabbits are the same color as the vegetable that rabbit brings back… To start, I’m going to put the rabbits up and we’ll count to ten.

So she sends them out to find food:

One purple cabbage, 2 white onions, 3 yellow peppers...

I think I’ll point to Rabbit 1 and say, The purple rabbit brought one purple cabbage, etc.

I used a hemp rope for the onion...


4 red tomatoes, five pink potatoes, six orange carrots


Seven brown mushrooms, eight blueberries, nine green peas in a pod, and ten peppercorns


And… when they all came home and gathered their food … an abundance of food:

An abundance of food!

To see what Mama Rabbit does with it, read the book.

Cate has the round-up this week.

To learn about Flannel Friday, go see Miss Anne.   She’s got it all organized.

And, Melissa has a handy search tool to find all things story time.

  2. Yay! A brand new book that looks great! All of this title in our system are in processing so I put a hold on it. I hope I get one in time to make a flannel for my Snack with the Easter Bunny program. I am always looking for something new to add to our special events each year. This looks like it could be the one for this year. Thanks for sharing it!

    Your pieces look great! It must have taken you quite a bit of time to prepare all of them. So colorful!
