Everything has changed overnight, and Rabbit has a lot of BIG emotions to understand.

There’s a virus spreading all around the world, and Rabbit wants to know why. By asking questions of Mom, Rabbit uncovers something magical and powerful: all over the planet, people are taking action! They’re helping to protect each other, and every kid can help, too. Even Rabbit can help to heal the world.

Through conversations with children and families, and seeing the questions and feelings of her own child, Cassie St. Amand has written a book that provides a voice for children in uncertain times everywhere. Parents and caregivers can use this resource with the children in your life, and help them ask all the BIG questions they might be too afraid to say out loud.
