The Rabbit Listened
Cori Doerrfeld

Age range 3 to 6

A person dealing with grief or depression often needs someone who will just sit quiet and listen.

In The Rabbit Listened we know that Taylor has been through a very difficult time. And now he is surrounded by concerned friends who each tell him how he should feel and what he should do to start feeling better. But it is not until they have gone and a little rabbit comes and sits quietly by his side, that he begins to process his thoughts and start to think and feel on his own.

'Brims with emotional honesty and profound empathy.' — Publishers Weekly, starred review

'Doerrfeld gives children a model for how to process difficult events and provide meaningful support to friends who need it. This appealing work is an excellent addition to any emotional-intelligence shelf.' — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
