The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo

I recommend this book for: grades 4-5

Books about toy rabbits make me cry. Or maybe it's just books by Kate DiCamillo . . . Edward Tulane is a very fine-looking china rabbit who's very proud. Even though the little girl who owns him loves him very much, he's too wrapped up in himself to return her love. But then an accident tears Edward away from her and he realizes how dark and cold the world can be. His various adventures take him to different people who love him - and he eventually learns to love them in return. This is not a book for every reader, but for those who can appreciate the miracle of learning to love, it will be an unforgettable experience.

Other thoughts.
