I Want My Hat Back documents a bear’s journey to find his beloved hat. He goes to several different animals in turn to ask if they have seen his hat, but each one answers no. A deer finally asks a simple question that jogs his memory back to a certain lying rabbit, and he storms back for his hat. The rabbit is doomed.

I laughed out loud reading this book. It’s simple, yet hilarious. I most appreciate that it will get the kid thinking--what was it about the rabbit that's suspicious? What do you think happened to the rabbit? If anything, you'll want to read it because it's funny. I definitely recommend it.

Find it in your library or on Amazon
