The children enjoyed the book, It goes through the months, I only read selected text from each month in the group setting.

My four-year-old has requested this a few times, but not many. Its calendar format isn't particularly conducive to story time and it still takes a long time to go through. The details in each illustration are fantastic, though, and she has spent some time just exploring on her own (she can't read the words on her own yet, though). I think more experienced readers might get more out of this fascinating and humorous book. I certainly loved it and made sure to read every little detail after my daughter went to sleep.

Another Emily Gravett masterpiece! Read along as the months pass, and the rabbit population grows, so much so that they literally start spilling out of Fibonacci's Field. A clever way to teach a famous math idea. Fun little extra's include a carrot recipe book, newsletter....and there are rabbit's!

Beautifully illustrated, lots of fun extras (including a rabbit newspaper and cookbook), plus it incorporates math with Fibonnaci's equation/numbers... Love it.
