KIRKUS REVIEW

 Hedgehog has made Rabbit a grand kite, but Rabbit is too impetuous--his eager attempts to fly it without a tail, and then in the woods, end in mishaps that Hedgehog patiently shows him how to right. At last the kite takes flight, on the beach--and breaks its string. Now it's Hedgehog's turn to be discouraged, but Rabbit has profited by his previous good example: ``Don't worry, we can make a new kite. You can show me how.'' Purposeful, but gracefully phrased in natural cadences; Munsinger's little characters are endearingly expressive. Another fine ``Bank Street Ready-Read'' (Level 2). (Easy reader. 4-8)
