42 posts | 26 read | 11 to read
A universal, deeply moving exploration of grief and empathy With its spare, poignant text and irresistibly sweet illustrations, The Rabbit Listened is a tender meditation on loss. When something terrible happens, Taylor doesn't know where to turn. All the animals are sure they have the answer. The chicken wants to talk it out, but Taylor doesn't feel like chatting. The bear thinks Taylor should get angry, but that's not quite right either. One by one, the animals try to tell Taylor how to process this loss, and one by one they fail. Then the rabbit arrives. All the rabbit does is listen, which is just what Taylor needs. Whether read in the wake of tragedy or as a primer for comforting others, this is a deeply moving and unforgettable story sure to soothe heartache of all sizes.

Fats‘ review: “With scarce text and tender, soft colored illustrations, The Rabbit Listened is a beautiful picturebook about empathy.

I love how the the background is always white but it is easy to understand their surrounding without an insanely detailed background. The illustrations are very light and sweet.

This books used onomatopoeia regarding animals and characterized them very well. This is a sweet story of a child who can seem to get along with any animals except a nice little rabbit. The way the text was placed on the pages with images added to the book in my opinion.

Poetry. I would definitely use this in a classroom. It shows that sometimes you don‘t need or want someone to suggest ways to make it better, you just want someone to listen while you work it out. It‘s an important lesson for others who want to help and for those who need someone to hear them. It‘s cute and fun and relatable and perfect for children.

The rabbit listened, by Cori Doerrfeld, was published in 2018. This poem is about a little child named Taylor that had created an amazing structure out of blocks and it fell down. Once the structure fell Taylor wanted to be alone but many different animals came to try and cheer him up. He didn‘t want to forget about it and do something else. A rabbit came along and listened to him rant. There is repetition in this poem and little rhyme.

The illustrations were also repetitive but different because each time it was a new animal.

The Rabbit Listened by Cori Doerrfeld, 2018. This is a cute poem about how sometimes you just need someone to listen. The use of repetition, onomatopoeia, and imagination make the story a sweet and fun read. It‘s a free form poem so it has no rhyme scheme, but despite that it flows beautifully.

This story was published in 2018. It is a poem about friendship that is depicted through imagination and repetition. The story used animals as the friends of the boy which opens a door for children to use their creativity while reading.

Published in 2018, this poetry book uses the element of repetition and focuses on imagination in a sense of Taylor creating a block structure from his own creativity. It is a relatable story for young children because many children know what‘s its like to create something and have it be knocked down and so this sheds light on perseverance and trying again!

The Rabbit Listened is a poetry story written by Cori Doerrfeld in 2018. This form of poetry used a lot of repetition. The story used a lot of imagination that could help the child see things in a new way through animals. I found this book to be very cute and relatable to children.

This book was about Taylor and her distorted bower. A lot of animal friends came and tried to tell Taylor how to deal with it but in the end she just needed someone to listen.

2018, poetry. Cute story with a theme of being there for your friends. Shows kids how sometimes all you have to do is listen and be there and that‘s enough to help a friend out. Words flow through the pages and same with the drawings.

"The Rabbit Listened" by Cori Doerfeld is a sweet, simple, fictional (F) story that has won the Charlotte Huck Award. "The Rabbit Listened" is a great applicant for shared reading (SR) because of its intriguing plot that keeps readers interested.
When something bad happens to Taylor, he is unsure of what he should do! Suddenly, all of the animals begin to pry into Taylor's business, but he does not want to open up and share his feelings.

caldwellalex95 Throughout the story, Taylor experiences a plethora of emotions. Finally, a rabbit approaches Taylor with the kindest attitude. Taylor emotionally opens up to the rabbit and appreciates how the rabbit listens to his thoughts and feelings. Ultimately, the rabbit's calming nature made Taylor feel so much better. Susan Hill, a children's author, shared on her personal website how a lesson about feelings and emotions can benefit students and relate 5mo
caldwellalex95 them to the theme of this story, which is empathy. Once the teacher is finished reading "The Rabbit Listened", students can initiate a THINK PAIR SHARE activity and discuss with a peer how they might help someone who was angry, sad, or scared. What does happiness look like to you? Anger? Surprise? ESOL strategy #10 and UDL's guideline self-regulation (9.3) and communication (5.3) are applicable for this book. 5mo
caldwellalex95 Overall, "The Rabbit Listened" is a story everybody should read, because it reminds all of us how to respect and treat others during a difficult time. www.susannahill.com/2018/03/02/perfect-picture-book-friday-the-rabbit-listened/ #LAE3414SP19 5mo
DrSpalding I have not seen this one. Your post made me want to add it to my stack. Looks wonderful! Nice universal design and English learner alignment. 5mo

You know who needs to read this book? Adults. A wonderful lesson on how to help someone who is grieving a loss. Just be there and let them lead. Helpful without being heavy-handed. Totally kid-friendly and accessible.

Can we talk about how much I love this book? Taylor (who is never gendered) builds a fantastic block structure, which gets knocked down. Animals offer solutions and ways to react, but it turns out what Taylor needs is someone to listen and give them space to process. A quiet book that still has enough plot for a good read aloud to a group. #storytime #emotions #kidlit #raisingreaders

A gentle reminder that silence is often golden. Instead of trying to fix things or offer solutions, little rabbit was just there for Taylor and it made all the diiference in the world.

Taylor builds something great but after it's destroyed the animals try to help make Taylor feel better by offering to yell or laugh together, but Taylor doesn‘t want to do any of those things. No one makes Taylor feel better until the rabbit comes along. This is a cute story for any student going through something and also helps other us learn that sometimes the best thing to do to make someone feel better is to just be there for them. #UCFLAE3414

sboynt This would be a great book to present as a PR. Along with the possibility as a SR, RA, GR, or IR. Because this book is so new, there aren‘t many online resources for lesson plans yet but I found a link for more information about the book and how to purchase it. https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/552119/the-rabbit-listened-by-cori-doer... 1y
sboynt This book is so important for teaching compassion and patience; it is a great addition to any classroom library. Remember UDL 3.1 activate or supply background knowledge and ESOL 4 link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge with this text. 1y
