February Friend by Ron Roy

Recommendation: Highly  Recommended

A anonymous valentine at their class Valentine's Day party gives Mr. Vooray's class an unexpected surprise - a bunny! But who gave it to them? While taking care of it for the weekend, Bradley, Brian, Nate and Lucy notice that the rabbit seems ill and the vet says the only way to save the bunny is to find its owner. Following the clues they find, these four young sleuths race against the clock to save the bunny.

Positives: I liked the care, kindness and respect exhibited by these children, not only toward the bunny but the other people in the story as well.

Negatives: None

Talking Points: Talk to your children about kindness and respect. Genesis 1:26-31 tells us that man has dominion over the animals on the earth, we are to properly take care of them, but more importantly we are to be kind and respectful toward people (Rom. 13:9, Eph. 4:31-32, Luke 10:25-37).

Age Level: 4-8 years old (Reading Level 2.3)
