All Day


In this gorgeously written and illustrated book by Petr Horacek, Hare’s meadow is a beautiful place but he can’t tell whether it’s the best place in the world. His friends all say yes: the rabbits love to run and  play together in the fields, the birds love to sing to Hare from high up in the trees, and Bear loves the bees and the honey they share with everyone. But Hare still isn’t certain, so he sets off to explore the world and find out for himself. He discovers green fields, gushing rivers, and starlit deserts. His friends would surely love these places , too, but they’re all back in the meadow without him…which leads Hare to realize something important.
