    This book did not win literary acclaim in its own time because it is a gentle spirited, lovely, book about animals and their families It won because it hints at the deeper perspective of the landscape in which these animals live The human presence on the landscape fore fronted in the story by a home sale, and a new human family renovating and moving into a home that has long been left empty in the center of a community of small, wild animals is considered through the deeper span of history, This book did not win literary acclaim in its own time because it is a gentle spirited, lovely, book about animals and their families It won because it hints at the deeper perspective of the landscape in which these animals live The human presence on the landscape fore fronted in the story by a home sale, and a new human family renovating and moving into a home that has long been left empty in the center of a community of small, wild animals is considered through the deeper span of history, as the animals retain dim memories of a landscape unpopulated by Europeans the story is set in 1944 current day Connecticut, USA , and then traversed by troops marching off to the Rev...

    My bunnies approved.Life on the Hill is changing with the arrival of New Folks Will they be Good Folks, with a big luscious garden that the Little Animals can feast on Or will it be Bad Folks, like the last ones, with traps, guns, and poisons Every animal in this book was their own character with their own voice Father spoke like an Old Southern Colonel from Bluegrass Country although this takes place in Connecticut he must have married a Northern girl Uncle Analdas was that cranky, para My bunnies approved.Life on the Hill is changing with the arrival of New Folks Will they ...

    This is a really sweet book about kindness to animals except dogs apparently there s a scene where a woman throws a rock at a dog to keep it from getting a woodchuck You shouldn t hurt dogs, even for the sake of other creatures The characters, both animal and human, are delightful and each animal has a unique dialect, similar to Redwall, which is a feature I always find amusing The ending is definitely a surprise and a really good one actually there s two surprises towards the end, and This is a really sweet book about kindness to animals except dogs apparently there s a scene where a woman throws a rock at a dog to keep it from getting a woodchuck You shouldn t hurt dogs, even for the sake of other creatures...

    This book is incredibly dull It is told from the perspective of rabbits and all the other animals as the new folks move into the old farmhouse and start growing things again The animals have all been worried about finding food as there haven t been human gardens around to raid for several years In general, I don t like books that anthropomorphize animals I also don t like when the natural world is romanticized to the effect that all creatures great and small can live in harmony Spoiler aler This book is incredibly dull It is told from the perspective of rabbits and all the other animals as the new folks move into the old farmhouse and start growing things again The animals have all been worried about finding food as there haven t been human gardens around to raid for several years In general, I don t like books that anthropomorphize animals I also don t like when the natural world is romanticized to the effect that all creatures great and small can live in harmony Spoiler alert At the end of this book the family that moves in ends up planting a beautiful garden and also creating a special haven with plenty of food for...

    I read this multiple times as a child, and I m just not sure why I was taken fairly often to a very good library, so it s not as though I was starved for choice I guess I was just very much a devoted rereader in those days Revisiting it for the first time in roughly 33 years, by reading it aloud to my son, I found that there was hardly anything other than the lingering comforting sense of familiarity that I liked about it There is not much plot Some animals are hungry Then new folks move i I read this multiple times as a child, and I m just not sure why I was taken fairly often to a very good library, so it s not as though I was starved for choice I guess I was just very much a devoted rereader in those days Revisiting it for t...

    The 3 star rating is NOT because it s a groundbreaking award winning story It s because I appreciate the cleverness of the Newbery committee for choosing this seemingly goofy book that has so much deeper meaning especially in the time period that this won It s actually a pretty fun read, thanks to the lively humor and plotting Sure, it s old fashioned and corny, but that s the point If you re ever feeling depressed by Newbery books, this will set you up for some good hearty entertainment, The 3 star rating is NOT because it s a groundbreaking award winning story It s because I appreciate the cleverness of the Newbery committee for choosing this seemingly goofy book that has so much deeper...

    Some authors are so easy and fun to read aloud and Lawson is one of them We both enjoyed the tight and somewhat gossipy animal community of Rabbit Hill, who are all agog that someone new is moving into the farm house around with they live Will these people tolerate the animals in their vegetable garden or will they be vegetable misers Read this funny and sweet story to find out Update The review above was from 2008, when Logan was 4 We just read it again in 2013 and he s 8 1 2 He didn t r Some authors are so easy and fun to read aloud and Lawson is one of them We both enjoyed the tight and somewhat gossipy animal community of Rabbit Hill, who are all agog that someone new is moving into the farm house around with they live Will these people tolerate the animals in their vegetable garden or will they be ve...

    This is a book I read many summers ago as a child Robert Lawson s writing and world he created, with words and with pencil, fascinated me For the time I read this, I was lost in the well crafted, peaceful and lush community of Rabbit Hill, the Bluegrass Country, Uncle Analdas s home, and the other vivid scene s Lawson mad...

    I hate to pan a Newberry Award winner, especially one that has kindness to animals as its main theme Lawson s story, though, took anthropomorphism to extremes without any of the charm found in other animal stories e.g Charlotte s Web or the Beatrix Potter books I didn t find the characters personality quirks, such as the mother s endless worrying and the father s ceaseless boasting about his life in Kentucky, endearing, but annoying Also, the misspellings within the quotes were, I m sure, I hate to pan a Newberry Award winner, especially one that has kin...
