From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- Seven short, whimsical tales are spun by Mama Rabbit as she and her children wait for Papa's return in this offering by the author of Waiting-for-Spring Stories (Harper, 1984). Just right for early transitional readers, the stories have an appeal similar to that of Arnold Lobel's Mouse Tales (Harper, 1972). Papa Rabbit foils would-be predators by claiming to be other than a rabbit, entertains a bored flower, enjoys a cleansing walk in the rain, and has other mini-adventures that should keep young readers and listeners interested. Children will see themselves in the kite that is having such fun flying that it doesn't want to go home, and they will recognize Papa Rabbit's attempts to persuade it to come down. Stapler's illustrations suit the stories well. Her rabbits inhabit a brighter and more elaborate home than William Joyce's rustic settings of the earlier book. Little details such as the bunny slippers in the bedroom and the bunny dolls held by some of the children add interest. The overall feeling is a cozy one of family warmth. Children are sure to be captivated by the charm and gentle humor of the stories. --Louise L. Sherman, Anna C. Scott School, Leonia, NJ
