It was a very difficult part to play. He had to be lazy and just roll around on the chair. His acting capabilities were astounding! I don't know how many kids could have performed that part as well as he did.
It's tough being lazy! The other children played the parts of Hare's family and went about planting and harvesting crops. It was really too adorable. So fun to see the book we had been reading come to life, with music and singing too!
Well, the reason they used this particular book was because the author and her sister were coming to the school for a visit that week! Susan Stevens Crummel and her sister Janet Stevens are so talented and their books are just wonderful!
