Harry: The Very Hairy Hare
About the Book
Harry grows up a happy rabbit with lots of friends to play with. As he gets older, a funny thing happens. Harry gets hairier and hairier until his friends start making fun of him. They taunt Harry for being different, and he soon feels like he has no friends at all.
Then, something terrible happens to Henry the hare, and “hairy” Harry comes to his rescue. Despite his friends being mean, Harry chooses to be kind and helpful. His actions make the other rabbits realize it doesn’t matter what they look like, but it does matter how they treat each other.
Sadly, many children today experience bullying in a variety of forms. Harry: The Very Hairy Hare is about overcoming bullying through kindness and acts of love. We’re all responsible for our words and actions, so instead of being cruel, smile, share a kind word, and do a good deed.
