HERE’S OUR REVIEW
“A story of self-acceptance, courage, and unbreakable friendship”
Please Don’t Tell Cooper That Jack is a Rabbit is a heart-warming picture book that follows the main character, Cooper the rescue dog, on a journey to find a true friend. It shows children through simple words and brilliantly whimsical illustrations that being different is not a barrier to making good friends and that there are many ways of being. Loved this incredibly sweet book; it’s sure to touch a chord with both children and adults alike!
This is the second in Cooper the Dog series which is a three-book series that children will love as they learn about kindness to animals and pet adoption. The first book was named Please Don’t Tell Cooper He’s a Dog. It introduced the readers to a huge rescue dog, Cooper, and his shenanigans as he learns to live with his new family. In Please Don’t Tell Cooper That Jack is a Rabbit, Cooper has become much more civilized. He is mostly well-behaved except for one bad habit. Cooper can’t stop himself from chasing a rabbit every time he spots him in the yard. But don’t get him wrong. His intentions are kind. Cooper is on a quest to find a true friend and he thinks Jack, the rabbit will be a perfect companion. People think it’s an unlikely friendship because of their differences but Cooper and Jack are inseparable — just as best friends should be. And they do EVERYTHING together. Like exploring cafes and museums, bookstores, and playgrounds. The two friends admit that without each other they found life lonely. Never again will they leave each other’s side. This clever story reminds us that it’s not about making assumptions about the people you meet, but enjoying them for who they are!
Teaching children to recognize and celebrate diversity and difference is essential to healthy development – it not only helps kids be more accepting of others but to also accept themselves and their own strengths and weaknesses. Please Don’t Tell Cooper That Jack is a Rabbit celebrates the uniqueness of all those around us– family, friends, and those in the wider community.
