Battersby, Katherine Brave Squish Rabbit, PICTURE BOOK. Viking, 2012. $12.99. Content: G.
We are all afraid of something. For a little rabbit named Squish, fears can seem much bigger than himself. When his best friend is missing, Squish summons his own bravery to help find what is important to him.
The simple, textural, collage illustrations make this sweet story stand out. Squish’s fears are relatable for young children, as is his active imagination. The message that courage can be found when you really need it is good for all readers to remember.
