This is a story about a bilbie. Bilbies are marsupials, about the size of a rabbit and like rabbits have large ears. They are found in Australia. They are endangered due to habitat destruction and competition for food with rabbits and livestock. Just look at that beautiful illustration!
This is a wonderfully uplifting book with the simple message of our common humanity. We are united in that we all love and hurt the same. This is my (adult) go to book when I am having a bad day. compelling and soothing at the same time. Simple enough for the pre-k crowd too.
