What It Is
Taking Care of Mama Rabbit is a 24-page picture book by Anita Lobel that tells the story of 10 little rabbits pitching in to make their sick mom feel better. While their father goes out to get their mother medicine, each of the little rabbits gives Mama Rabbit something to make her feel better: a cup of hot cocoa, a picture, a good book, and more. By the time Papa Rabbit comes home, Mama Rabbit is feeling much better.
