Little Rabbit provides an excellent example of a character whose thoughts put good things into motion in Kate Klise's treasure Shall I Knit You A Hat? In this tale about gift giving and gratitude, Mother Rabbit sees a blizzard coming and knits a cool cap to keep Little Rabbit's ears warm. Little Rabbit, in turn, asks for caps for all of his friends. He helps his mom by distracting his friends so that she can get measurements for her crafty creations. The mother-son duo works tirelessly to get the hats done and give them to the friends. When the cold winds start to blow, the animals see the beauty of and appreciate the warmth that they received from the Rabbits. When Little Rabbit realizes that he was too busy giving to his friends that he forgot a gift for his mother, her heartwarming response reassures him that “being with you is the best gift of all.” This treasures comes complete with a pattern for creating a hat so why ‘knot’ get out your needles and some yarn and get clicking.
