Tops & Bottoms by Janet Stevens
This gorgeously illustrated Caldecott Honor Book is the delightful story of a lazy bear and a family of very industrious bunnies. The bear, who is not only lazy but very rich, owns all of the farm land. The bunnies are a large hungry family with no land, so they make bear an offer - if he donates the land they will do all of the work. The bunnies promise to split the crops they grow in half with the bear, all he has to do is chose the top or the bottom half. Once the crops come in, the bear realizes he has been tricked by the bunnies. This is a great book for children once they've reached the stage of liking to hear longer stories. Where to Buy: Any children's book seller would have this book or could easily order it for you.
