A heartwarming wintertime tale about a bunny and her boy.

When Brandon was first given his rabbit, Rosa, he thought she was better than perfect. He would stroke her and feed her bits of carrots and apples from his fingers. And Rosa felt happy. But as Brandon grew up, he became too busy to play. Rosa was hungry and lonely and worried that nobody loved her.

One snowy day, Brandon takes Rosa outside to show her the snow . . . and then forgets her. With the help of some friendly woodland animals, she is able to find her way home - just as Brandon comes out to look for her. A bit of separation has made him realize what he almost lost, and Rosa knows from the smile on his face that he really does love her after all.

On a Snowy Night is a sweet tale of friendship, with a gentle message about helping others. Readers will delight in Jean Little's soothing text and Brian Deines's warm, expressive illustrations as they enjoy this reassuring tale again and again.
