Listen Buddy by Helen Lester is a story about a little bunny with big beautiful ears who doesn’t use them. He doesn’t pay attention to what people are saying to him. When his dad asks him for a pen, he brings a hen. And when his mom asks for a slice of bread, he saws the bed. One day he goes for a hop all by himself and his lack of attention gets him into some hot water…but he learns his lesson quickly!
