Review: With rabbits as stand-ins for a Mummy and a Daddy, this simple story for very young children tells how Pally and Comet tried to have a baby but couldn’t, so they borrowed some “tiny itsy bitsy seeds,” a “tiny itsy bitsy gift of life” from another rabbit Mummy to help them grow their baby inside of Pally. It may be difficult to explain to children how the donor knew that seeds were needed and that the gift was so small even though it is so large. Illustrations are excellent. High quality binding.
