The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo
Kid-lit author, Hannah Hall, said the The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane was one of her favorite children’s books. Recently, I read the story and it’s now one of my favorites as well.
This is the tale of a self-centered porcelain rabbit who becomes aware of his deficiencies through a series of adventures. The relationships he forms along his journey penetrate his cold heart.
This is my favorite Kate DiCamillo book! She’s written so many wonderful stories for children and I recommend you read all her titles to your children.
Every rabbit I encounter from here on out will be Edward Tulane in my heart. Everyone will enjoy this book. The themes of compassion, love, and sacrifice will always be relevant.
