About the Book
This charming and humorous easy-to-read picture book explores the relationship between two animal friends, Red and Bunny, as they spend the day playing in the snow. Red relentlessly teases Bunny through a variety of different pranks, which he justifies by telling Bunny, "It's just a joke." However, when the tables are turned and Red becomes the butt of a joke, Bunny shows compassion and forgiveness by inviting Red inside for a cup of hot cocoa.
Packed with adorable and endearing illustrations, Snow Joke teaches its readers the value of forgiveness and compassion as well as the undeniable importance of being able to put oneself in the shoes of another.
