The Magic Rabbit by Richard Jesse Watson. “Once there was a magic rabbit…” begins this lovely, rainbow-hued story about a lonesome rabbit and the magic of imagination and friendship. The magic rabbit can make almost anything appear out of his top hat - juggling balls, colorful scarves, yummy food, even a car! But what he really wants is a friend. Over and over, the rabbit tries to conjure another animal to share his fun, but they all run away. The sad rabbit is almost about to give up, when he discovers another magic hat… will this new hat finally provide a friend? The rich, oil-painting illustrations are gloriously colorful, and the rabbit’s beautifully painted, expressive face shows the reader just what he’s feeling. As an extra bonus, sharp-eyed readers will notice that the book’s pages form a rainbow when viewed from the edge, and that there’s a short 1-2-3 counting sequence hidden in the rabbit’s attempts to find friends.
