'There, There' by Tim Beiser with illustrations by Bill Slavin is a picture book about a fretting bunny and his patient friend Bear.
Hare is at Bear's house to play, and they had planned to play outside, but it is raining. Hare is bored and complaining. Bear is sympathetic. Hare continues to complain, while Bear bakes and offers more sympathy. This continues until Bear's patience is stretched thin, then an object lesson is in order to show Hare that things could be worse. Will Hare learn to be grateful?
I liked the illustrations in this book. The coloring is earth toned, and there are interesting textures painted onto the pages. Hare is funny in an overdramatic way. Bear is patient, but his patience is not endless. I like the lesson of being happy with what you've got. Young children would enjoy this silly read aloud book.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Tundra Books, Penguin Random House Canada, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
