A gentle friendship story that celebrates small acts of kindness!

This is Bunny feeling small,

not wanting to leave the bed at all.

Bunny wakes up feeling small. But on the way to school Bunny meets a friend, and then another, and another. And as they trade small acts of kindness, they 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.
