Young rabbit Hopscotch hates having his ears washed--until his cool older cousin Bobtail spends the night and shows him how easy it is. This is a rather obvious tale with a clear parallel to the age-old problem of selling kids on hair washing. The acrylic art is thoughtfully composed. Copyright 2006 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Like all preschoolers, Hopscotch the rabbit is confident of his likes and dislikes, and "the thing he did not like the most was... having his ears washed." Then he discovers his cool older cousin Bobtail not only doesn't mind ear washing, he even does the job himself. "Big rabbits wash their own ears," Hopscotch realizes. And if he can prove he's big, Hopscotch further reasons (correctly, as it turns out), his parents might just let him spend the night at Bobtail's house. Newcomer Stewart and Rankin (The Handmade Alphabet ) give their hero a strong motive and make him a good model for nudging along children's autonomy, and the two illustrations depicting Hopscotch's revelation have a nice sense of comic drama, especially when Hopscotch first spots Bobtail's scrubbing out of the corner of his eye. Although the anthropomorphized domestic scenes seem rather tame, they are sunny, and the message of independence will be well received by newly independent youngsters. Ages 4-8. (Mar.)

K-Gr 1 -Hopscotch hates to have his ears cleaned. To avoid it, the little rabbit covers his head with a saucepan, upside-down pants, and oven mitts-and, on one occasion, just runs away. Some parents may squirm at the way his mom begs and even bribes her child; they may also blink at how easily the youngster comes around as he follows his older cousin's example and eventually performs the task himself. Although the text is sometimes wordy, it lends itself well to reading aloud, with plenty of potential (including silly song lyrics) for hamming it up. Rankin's acrylic inks and paints have a watercolor gentleness combined with concentrated tints. The characters are funny, adorable, and expressive. Children can look at the pictures over and over and keep finding more enchanting details. A good book for sharing, with a childlike protagonist and a satisfying ending.-Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
