I have never "read" a wordless book with a little person. This story, with its fanciful rabbit and devoted sisters, makes me want to try.

Point 1 in favor of this book: jaw-droppingly beautiful cut paper illustrations. Point 2 in favor of this book: magic. Always good! Point 3: possibly the first children's picture book I have EVER read with a main character who has a disability, but disability isn't the focus of the book.

Two sisters find a small bunny out in the snow, and initially bring it in to warm up, but then realize they must return it outside. One sister uses a wheelchair, and she keeps up just fine until one of her wheels gets snagged on a bush. Neither of them can dislodge it, so the no-wheelchair sister sits in her lap for warmth while they try to figure out what to do. This story could just as easily have been the non-wheelchair-using sister getting her foot caught in a hole in the ground, and the girls are clearly both in this together, equal partners.

I am a little concerned that no parents or guardians seem to have noticed these two girls are out in the snowy woods and it's getting dark. What's up with that? But I guess the outcome would be less magical if Dad or Auntie showed up with a lantern and some gardening shears.
