What to Expect: Pets, coping with differences, friendship, diversity.

Cooper is back for another fun adventure! His family doesn’t realize it, but when Cooper takes off after each rabbit he sees, he’s really just looking for a friend! Laughing at all the disruption their chase has caused, Jack the rabbit soon realizes he doesn’t need to run away from Cooper, and the two of them become the best of friends. They make an odd-looking pair when they’re sailing, playing chess or making music together, but as their family and friends come to realize, what things look like isn’t really important. No matter how different they may be on the outside, Cooper and Jack have what counts—true friendship and someone to count on!

Sometimes, looking to nature can make it feel like differences are set in stone—could anything be more opposite, different, or separate than a carnivore and the herbivore it chases? Don’t Tell Cooper that Jack is a Rabbit uses humor and examples to show readers that there is no such thing as a difference that can’t be overcome. Fun and funny rhyming text is paired with illustrations that burst with movement and laughter, inviting the reader to join in with Cooper and Jack’s antics. By modelling how easily friendship can overcome differences, this story will have readers thinking about diversity without even realizing they’re doing so.

Please Don’t Tell Cooper That Jack is a Rabbit is a fantastic and enjoyable read.
