the rabbits

brrr brrr brrr. it was mighty chilly out this morning. i was sure to toss on a pair of long johns under my jeans before heading out.  long underwear, wool sweater and a hot hot coffee. quite a change from the tropical heatwave we had on tuesday.

i discovered this book yesterday. it is a children’s book. written by john marsden. it is called, the rabbits.  what i found so intriguing about it was the illustration. the illustrator, shaun tan did a beautiful job. and the story is great too. its about colonization. it was written about when the rabbits were introduced into australia, and it nearly killed an ecosystem, but can also be applied to other colonizations. like when the pilgrims almost killed off the native americans.  i am so ecstatic to have come across this book. truly a wonderful find!

just look at the illustrations!

it’s really a treat to look at and read. for both child and adult! i have certainly found a new favorite kids book.
