A Gift for Me? (I Want It!)


By: Zeena Pliska / Illustrated by: Hazel Quintanilla

Who gets to give?

It's the winter gift-giving season, and Arctic Hare wants every gift she sees. "I want that!" she cries over and over. But when she sees the joy that giving brings the giver as well as the receiver, Arctic Hare changes her tune to "I want to give!" She gives a special personal item of her own. 

Sweet and silly, Chicken Soup for the Soul Babies imparts good values through heartwarming and humourous stories to help little ones put their best foot forward.

The Arctic Hare family knows, "Getting presents is fun!" and "Giving them is wonderful, too." Sure, it can be just as fulfilling to give as to receive, but babies don't always understand this right away. Little Arctic Hare is very interested in all the gifts his parents and older sister are making. When Arctic Fox gets mittens that Papa Hare knitted, Little Arctic Hare cries, "I want those mittens! My favorite color is red!" The same yearning happens over the strand of sparkly stars Sister made for Polar Bear and the painting Mama did for Snowy Owl. The family members recognize Little Arctic Hare's feelings while also explaining that each gift is being given for a reason. He is not convinced; he's even rather pouty. When Little Harp Seal greets the family, Little Arctic Hare realizes nobody has a gift for their friend. Little Arctic Hare recalls the other moments of giving on a climactic spread showing his various expressions and body positions as he wrestles with his decision. Rather quickly, Little Arctic Hare goes from being hesitant to taking action and then showing joy as he gives a snow globe from his backpack to Little Harp Seal.
