Imagine Harry by Kate Klise is an adorable book about Little Rabbit and his imaginary best friend, Harry.  They do everything together, from climbing trees, rolling down hills, and enjoying their everyday snacks.  Little Rabbit loves playing with Harry but wonders what Harry will do when he starts school soon. Mother Rabbit takes Harry in as her own, supplying him with his own lemonade and cookies and she lets Little Rabbit stay up past his bedtime so Harry will not feel alone.  She warns Little Rabbit that when he starts school in the fall, Harry won't be able to have his own desk and will have to be very quiet. After school starts, Harry is so quiet and Little Rabbit becomes very interested in school and his new friends.  Eventually, Harry disappears and  Little Rabbit is okay with that... so is Mother Rabbit.  This is such a sweet story about a small child's transition from being at home with Mom to staring school for the first time.
