When Brandon was given a little bunny for his fifth birthday, he was enchanted with his new pet. He named her “Rosa” and spent all his time with her, playing with her, grooming her and feeding her.

After a while, though, Brandon became busier and less attentive to his pet – as children often do. At times Rosa felt lonely and neglected.

On Christmas Eve Brandon was excited by the falling snow and took his bunny outside to experience winter. Called inside, he inadvertently left her in the cold.

Rosa tried to find her way back to the house but quickly became lost and cold.

Now other creatures came to her rescue. The Chickadees warmed her with their feathers; a squirrel nudged her onto a found mitten and a raccoon gave her the carrot nose of a snowman to eat. Later, a hawk, flying by, guided her back to the house, where a very worried Brandon was happily reunited with his lost pet.

On a snowy night, on Christmas Eve, kindness and love can be found in unexpected places.

The lovely oil illustrations, created by Brian Deines in soft, muted colours, echo the softly falling snow of the winter evening in this charming story by Jean Little, who has long been one of Canada’s favourite children’s authors.
