His room was a mess, you can guess I am sure, a disaster for all to see.
When asked to clean up he’d just run around. He had other places to be!
Each time he was told to do what was right, he would stamp his foot and complain.
Unless he had whatever he liked, he would do it again and again.
So bad was his stamping and moaning at times his parents decided to act.
His father said sternly over and over again, “This boy needs to learn one major fact!”
This is the second in a series of “There Was A …….rhyming books. It is a story about a little rabbit with a very naughty habit who learns to appreciate all that he has. After running away he discovers new friends who introduce him to life on a farm. Being away from his family makes him realise home is best!
