Please Don’t Tell Cooper That Jack is a Rabbit, Book 2 in the Cooper the Dog series (Mom’s Choice Award Recipient-Gold)


“From information on pet adoption to discussions of diversity, acceptance, and overcoming obstacles, Please Don’t Tell Cooper That Jack is a Rabbit embraces many themes that lend to opportunities for enlightenment for the very young.”

– D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

“Please Don’t Tell Cooper That Jack is a Rabbit is a charming story with an important and heartwarming moral: “Keep your mind and heart open when you meet someone new. You might find a great friend even if different from you! …. Feinberg’s fun-filled rhyming text makes the story whizz along at almost the same pace as Cooper and Jack, and it’s sure to both amuse and entertain youngsters…. Please Don’t Tell Cooper That Jack is a Rabbit is a delightful picture book that should appeal to children aged two to eight and their parents. Here’s to hoping that it won’t be the last book to feature Cooper the Dog.”

—Reviewed by Erin Britton for Manhattan Book Review
