Overview

A universal, deeply moving exploration of grief and empathy

With its spare, poignant text and irresistibly sweet illustrations, The Rabbit Listened is a tender meditation on loss.

When something terrible happens, Taylor doesn't know where to turn. All the animals are sure they have the answer. The chicken wants to talk it out, but Taylor doesn't feel like chatting. The bear thinks Taylor should get angry, but that's not quite right either. One by one, the animals try to tell Taylor how to process this loss, and one by one they fail. Then the rabbit arrives. All the rabbit does is listen, which is just what Taylor needs.

Whether read in the wake of tragedy or as a primer for comforting others, this is a deeply moving and unforgettable story sure to soothe heartache of all sizes.

An ingenious book that uses irresistible illustrations of animals to represent and demonstrate the stages of grief in the context a child can easily grasp. This is a story of friendship and learning to listen. On that can easily be applicable to all heartbreaks big and small (the toppling of a magnificent block tower).

It's a very good book for parents to read too. A different perspective to think about.
