"I'm not a fan of this book at all. The rabbit is lazy and a thief, yet he is portrayed as the good guy of the story and ends up getting away with little harm done to himself. I particularly disliked his interactions with the "tar baby." The effigy is the same size as the rabbit, so I'm assuming she was meant to be an adult. Yet he continually called her "girl" in a demeaning manner. Then he proceeded to hit, kick and bite her, simply because she would not talk to him. This is supposed to be humorous, because she is not a real rabbit. However, Bruh Rabbit doesn't know this. He thought he was attacking a real, live female rabbit. These types of stories just perpetuate the idea that women owe men their time and attention, and that violence is a reasonable reaction if a woman displeases a man. I don't care that they are rabbits, or that this is an old folk story; kids do learn lessons from the books that they read, and this is not one that I want little boys and girls taking to heart." said.

" Vibrant retelling of the classic tale from two children's literature legends. " said.

" A fantastic, hilarious, inspiring retelling of the most famous Brer Rabbit folktale, couched in the language of the Gullah storytellers along the South Carolina coast. James Ransome is at his best in illustrating this tale, with gorgeous paintings that perfectly convey the hilarity of the Trickster bunny. " said.

" This tale is an important American classic, told by Plantation Era African Americans during slavery times, and emphasizing cleverness over size and status. The tale is presented authentically here, as noted in the Afterword: "collected and recorded in fairly heavy Gullah speech of the Sea Islands of South Carolina". With vivid art and characterization, this is highly recommended for your children's collection. " said.

" Disclaimer: It is impossible to read this story aloud without developing a very thick and heavy Southern accent.This is just the story of Bruh Rabbit who kept stealing crops from Bruh Wolf. Bruh Wolf, tired of loosing his food, makes a rabbit out of tar. Bruh Rabbit ends up getting into a fight with the tar rabbit and getting caught in it when he hits, kicks, and bites it. It end with the very famous "Please don't throw me in the Brair Patch" plea...Illustrations are pretty good. " said.

" book:Bruh Rabbit and the Tar Baby Girl|43711] as told by Virginia Hamilton, Illustrated by James Ransome, New York: Blue Sky Press, 2003.My favorite retelling of the Rabbit and the Tar Baby story. A great book for story telling hour to children. Published posthumously.Age Range: 3 and up Lexile Measure: 390L " said.

"I had never heard of the Bruh Rabbit stories and tales before reading this book. The story focuses on Bruh Wolf who is trying to catch the critter who is eating all of his crops. Bruh Rabbit thinks he can outsmart Bruh Wolf and continues to steal Bruh Wolf's peanuts until he gets stuck to the Tar Baby Girl that Bruh Wolf sets out to catch the thief. It's a close call at the end, but Bruh Rabbit gets away and leaves Bruh Wolf until next time. I thought that this story was pretty exciting and I will definitely look into other Bruh Rabbit stories and tales. I really liked the dialect in this story. I think that the author did a great job making the story sound like it has been passed down from generation to generation. I also liked how the author included more details about the Bruh Rabbit tales at the end of the book. I think this book would be great for students of all ages. Both younger and older students will enjoy listening to this story as a read aloud. " said.

"This book was an interesting folktale. It had some different vocabulary in it that was at times, something I had never heard used before, but was not difficult to figure out the meaning when used in context of the story. Some examples of this vocabulary include nary, daylean, dayclean, and sidles. Outside of the context of this book I would never know what these words are. The ending of the story surprised me a little bit. The entire time I was reading the book, I was expecting Bruh Rabbit to be taught a lesson. As it turned out, Bruh Rabbit tricked the wolf again just as I thought the wolf had caught him. It was a little bit frustrating to me because I know in real-life situations, if there are individuals who are cheating the system or not putting in as much work as I am, I want to see them get what they deserve, but it always seems that right when you think they have been caught they get out of their punishment. Thats just what happened to Bruh Rabbit. It mades me think a little differently about this story when I read about how the slaves thought of themselves as Bruh Rabbit. This makes me almost root for Bruh Rabbit and hope for him to get away. It all depends on how to intrepret the story. " said.
