The Books

In the Forest

by Marie Hall Ets

One Potato Review

A boy starts a marching band from the animals of the forest; even a rabbit is welcome, though he will not contribute to the music, or play hide-and-seek, even if he does appear to enjoy a game of Drop-the-Handkerchief. “Don’t be afraid,” calls the boy. “If you want to go too, you can walk with me.” With Ets’s Just Me and Gilberto and the Wind, a book you can read over and over, and always feel included.
