Hopscotch is a very determined little rabbit. He knows exactly what he likes and what he does not like. And one thing is for sure - Hopscotch does not like having his ears washed. But when Bobtail, his older cousin, comes to stay the night, Hopscotch might just be persuaded otherwise.

4.0 out of 5 stars SOGGY EARS AND SLIPPERY SOAP 2 April 2006
By Gail Cooke TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Young rabbits are irresistible, even those with less than salutary characteristics such as Hopscotch. He's appealing, however (and that's a large however) he is also very particular. For a young fellow he has definite likes and dislikes.
In his preference category we find his toy, Rabbity, building block towers and chocolate cake. On his don't-care-for-at-all list are bedtime, cold wet paws.....and at the very top of his dislikes is having his ears washed.
After all, soap made him sneeze and when his ears were wet they dripped. So, this was something to be avoided at all costs. When his mother finally coaxed him into the tub he hold onto his ears "very, very tightly." No amount of trickery or bribery would make him let go of those ears.
One day Hopscotch's older cousin, Bobtail, came for a visit. After a day of play and a hearty dinner, it was bath time. Hopscotch was amazed to see Bobtail washing his own ears.
Sometimes all it takes is a good example for a finicky young rabbit to change his mind.
"Rabbit Ears" holds a lesson for all youngsters who don't relish bath time. Laura Rankin's amusing acrylic ink and paint illustrations add humor to this story of a small rabbit who wants to grow up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe Big Rabbits Wash Their Own Ears 3 Dec 2006
By George Buttner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
In "Rabbit Ears," the main character, Hopscotch, doesn't want to take a bath. It's not the bath itself so much that he's not keen on. He likes baths overall, really. It's just that he knows what he likes and does not like --- and taking a bath means having to wash his ears. Hopscotch does *not* like washing his ears. Will tricks work? Will treats work? Maybe Hopscotch just needs a good example.

"Rabbit Ears" is a story of learning and repsonsibility. And Hopscotch learns that learning to do grown-up things comes with privileges too. Not that he's ready to leave everything behind --- he still needs his stuffed toy rabbit --- Rabbity.

The illustrations in this book are unusual but pleasing. A good, maybe slightly off-beat choice for when it comes to woes at bathtime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Busy rabbits all wash their ears - except for Hopscotch, who likes his ears dry 9 May 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Busy rabbits all wash their ears - except for Hopscotch, who likes his ears dry. He'll do anything to avoid a bath; from pretending to be a clean cat with tiny ears to hiding them under his stuffed animal Rabbit. It takes an older cousin's visit to reveal a startling truth to Hopscotch, providing him with another alternative to never having his ears washed. Laura Rankin's engaging drawings make this a top pick.
