Board Book Review: Harris Finds His Feet

Harris Finds His Feet

4 out of 5 stars


Harris is a young hare who is self-conscious about his very large feet. His grandfather helps him understand how useful large feet are for a hare. He learns to jump high, run fast, and even to dig holes in the ground.

I loved the sweet illustrations in this board book! The art is lovely in a watercolor and ink style, and done with earthy colors. Harris and his grandfather are so cute! You can really feel the energy in the illustrations when the hares run and jump.

This story has such a great message of acceptance and love!

I love how the grandfather hare patiently teaches Harris about the world, taking him on adventures up the mountain and teaching him practical survival skills for a wild animal. The best part is the joy of running and the appreciation Harris has of the strength of his feet and how that enables him to explore the world.
