A tender meditation on loss and a universal, deeply moving exploration of grief and empathy
THE RABBIT LISTENED
by Cori Doerrfeld
Dial Books for Young Readers, February 2018
When disaster strikes, Taylor doesn’t know where to turn. 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 an unforgettable story to soothe heartache of all sizes. The destruction of Taylor’s block castle is a wonderfully general metaphor, making THE RABBIT LISTENED a fitting choice for a variety of circumstances be it the death of a pet, the loss of a beloved family member, a pending divorce or move, or even just a bad day at school. Furthermore, it’s a sorto of mirror for every child: Taylor’s gender and race are intentionally ambiguous so every child can see his or her self in this book.
