Just got new review books from Erdman's Books for Young Readers.  THE VERY BIG CARROT by Satoe Tone is a rabbit fantasy that follows a family of imaginative critters who think of the best way to use a very big carrot they just found.  Laws of gravity and physics are left behind as the author illustrates a carrot boat with an upside-down green stem formed to float and the orange part serving as a sail.  After several creative ideas, the rabbits think of one last thing they could do with the carrot because they're hungry.  You probably guessed what they did!  This book was published in France last year and in Grand Rapids, MI in 2013.  The illustrations are outstanding and feature the six rabbits as a collective - always sharing ideas and working together.  Watch their ears change position on each page. Great for readers in Grades K-2.
