Perfect Picture Book Friday
I love this picture book I’m a Hare, So There! (HMH Books for Young Readers, 2021) by Julie Rowan-Zoch coming out this month. It’s humorous and so true to how we are. Plus kids will be learning about a variety of animals as they read. And who doesn’t like a main character with an attitude?
When called a rabbit, Hare is incensed. He argues about why he’s not a rabbit. Of course, he calls the ground squirrel a chipmunk, a tortoise a turtle, a coyote a jackal, and doesn’t seem to care that he is wrong about them. But don’t call him a rabbit!
Lovely back-matter explains the differences between other animals who are similar. I can see this book being read and reread.
To learn about the author/illustrator read her bio. See some other books Julie has illustrated here and check out her portfolio with a variety of styles of artwork here.

Yeah, I’m still crying, Susan! Thank you so much! I’m beyond pleased that you get Jack! Have a lovely weekend – I sure will!
Could the names (i.e. titles) get any cuter? Love this one, so there 😉
So glad you chose Julie’s book for #PPBF! Great review, Susan.
Thanks! It’s such a great read-aloud.
