A gentle friendship story that celebrates small acts of kindness!
This is Bunny feeling small,
not wanting to leave the bed at all.
Bunny is having a tough morning, but manages to brighten up and get out the door. Pretty soon Bunny comes across Beetle, who needs a little cheering too. Bunny can do that! Bunny and Beetle band together and they come across Marten. They are just what Marten needed, and the three carry on. Along the way they pick up Wren and Lemming too.
Their care and attention to each other’s feelings boosts everyone’s mood. When they find Bear, who has forgotten something important, they joyfully come together to make a big difference.
Lyrical text is infused with Ruth Ohi’s signature energy, humour, and depth. This touching story of friendship is a great reminder of the power of kindness and empathy in building community.
