Published: Dial Books - February 20th, 2018

The Rabbit Listened is the story of a toddler with block vision and productivity. Stumped by the possibly intentional collapse of a play block tower, many characters offer solace and support, covering the gamut of valid responses. Finally, when the child relates the whole incident and ideas for revenge or rebuilding, the fact that somebody simply listens and hears is most inspiring.
