  1. Miriam

    Repressive cautionary tale about the repercussions of being different.A little rabbit child wants to have red wings Wise Old Groundhog sends him to the Wishing Pond after wishing hard all day, he grows wings He is overjoyed, but when he returns home his mother doesn t recognize him and refuses to let him into the house All the other animals likewise reject him because they have never seen a rabbit with red wings and he is forced to sleep on the hard ground He is hurt by stones and thorns The nex [...]

    There s a good message here to love yourself the way you are But overall I thought this book was preachy and kind of poorly conceived Even as a very young child reading this, I didn t understand why the problems the little rabbit had developed naturally as consequences based on his circumstances Little Rabbit wanted wings, and being that he lives in a world where animals talk to each other, there s some magic to be had He makes a magic wish and soon he is the proud owner of a pair of beautiful r [...]

    This fantasy book tells a great tale of a rabbit wishing to be someone else but himself This book s theme stands right out to children and they may relate to Little Rabbit s self esteem Rabbit goes around telling other animals what he wishes he could change about himself and children feel like that at times as well It tells the children reading this that they should be very proud of who they are and not wish to be someone else The tale is believable but only in this fantasy world and context of [...]

    This book was about a rabbit who wished to fly, but when he got his wish for a pair of red wings, everyone he knew even his parents shunned him and treated him like a monster The moral of the story is supposed to be about loving yourself the way you are, but as a tiny child, the presentation upset me greatly While the illustrations were lovely and the rabbit s celebration of flying shortly after getting the wings was really fun, the payoff just made me feel sort of sad and sick.Think about it th [...]

    The book teaches the lesson of appreciating what you have and not letting frivolous things take you away from who you are.I somewhat like the message that this book conveyed It s important to teach children that what others have isn t necessarily better than what you have, and the rabbit learned that the hard way when he finally got his red wings and nobody recognized him any.This is a simple story that children would enjoy However, there are a few things about this story that do not make sense [...]

    I see the reviews are pretty split on this book There s the it teaches your child to never be different, boo camp, and the be happy with your blessings, yay camp I m on the fence, but my 4 year old loves it, so we ll go with yay.

    Jacqueline Rogers is a vivid illustrator who highlights emotions and personalities with large eyes The theme is a cautionary standard but Carolyn Sherwin Bailey is inventive I am giving this to my friend s brand new Granddaughter tomorrow I smile, thinking of her growing up familiar with this simple present Don t wish to be anyone but who you truly are is an old message, a good one to teach early in life Reading between the lines of choices and behaviours, alerts us to petty peer pressure and eq [...]

    There was a little rabbit who wanted to fly, but when his wish comes true will it be all he hoped it would be It wasn t until I looked this up and saw the other cover art did I realize I totally knew this book as a kid The edition we have now is fun and decent I think the one I remember had somewhat cuter illustrations , and the story and message is intact There are a lot of reviews on here that I think are seriously missing the point of this fable, but I ll just say that especially nowadays it [...]

    Don t Read This To My KidsThis book sends the wrong message to impressionable children I hated it so much that I posted a video review of it on YouTube You can find it on my channel, Don t Read This To My Kids Basically, when the Little Rabbit gets the titular red wings, his mother and all the other animals reject him as a stranger and he is forced to undo his wish in order to fit in again It teaches kids that being different is bad My video review goes into detail youtu pSOI8ZVIi4E

    This one was a Children s Classic from when I was young The pictures were breathtaking and bright while everyone could see the bright yet beautiful red wings that grew from the little bunny even as the chipmunks played with his shirt The story covers the ideas that not all changes to our physical appearance can warrant the best and sometimes in the long run they may be our undoing Now being able to read over it as an adult it does make me wonder how his mother still didn t recognize him even wit [...]

    This has been a favorite of my nieces and nephews, starting back in the early 80s Not a favorite of mine, but that doesn t matter I know they liked pointing their fingers and moving their hands in circles three times each time the rabbit made a wish The kids also learned the difference between a male and a female mallard I cringed every time we read the book and we see a picture similar to a male duck called Miss Puddle Duck.

  13. Taylor Williams

    This is a cute story of a rabbit who wants to be a little different and wishes to have red wings The bunny eventually gets what they want and runs into some issues with having the wings This is another great story to teach kids how being yourself is important and you don t need to change in order to be happy, just be you.

  14. Andrea Wick

    This is the story of a little rabbit who made a wish to have beautiful red wings When his wish is granted, his friends and family do not recognize him He found out that its better to be yourself than wish for something your not This would be great to use when teaching students that the best thing you can do is just be yourself It can also be used when talking about friendship.

  15. Laura Carby

    This is a story that I read to my students about not wishing to change ourselves Sometimes you don t realize how lucky you are until something or someone is gone This book teaches that no matter what you might not like about yourself, sometimes the grass isn t always greener on the other side.

  16. Tina

    Theme I m specialSummary A story about a little rabbit who wishes he was everybody else but himself and his final appreciation of who he is after he spends a day having a wish granted.

  17. Melinda

    This was one of my most oft requested bedtime stories as a child not particularly well known, but like most children s stories, it has a moral.

  18. Shannon

    Shannon 1988 Creepiest book EVERRR Heavy handed on the moral of the story, and did I mention it s creepy

  19. Siskiyou-Suzy

    Don t you dare dream, children, for if you do, and if you grow into something you wanted to be, then nobody who loves you will know who you are What a nightmare.

  20. Sarah

    I recall liking this book as a child, but thinking about it now and after reading other users reviews , it seems to have a pretty terrible message that you need to conform to be happy, that being different will make everyone ostracize you But then again, I don t think I picked up on that as a child I just thought it was about being happy as yourself, and not wishing to be someone else.
