In this adorable picture book we follow the journey of a little lost stuffed bunny who has, accidentally, fallen out of the car as the family goes camping. The bunny is scared and unsure what to do. But, as the story progresses, we find out that being lost doesn’t always have to be scary. You become more aware and you meet new friends. This story is perfect for all ages, both young and old. For whoever that may be lost.


— From Staff Picks: Picture Books

In this gentle read-aloud--a modern day Velveteen Rabbit--a stuffed bunny comes to life after getting lost on a family's camping trip, then finds its way back to its child.

"If you get lost, and you might get lost...." In simple language that speaks directly to us, a magical and soothing story unfolds. A little girl accidentally drops her stuffed bunny out the car window, and the bunny--which has quietly come alive-- feels scared. Searching up, down, in, out, and between, it soon finds itself among a group of friendly forest animals, who accompany it on its journey. Together they frolic through the woods and over a stream until the bunny finds itself safely back where it belongs, in the little girl's arms. 
Nikki Loftin is the author of three middle grade novels, including Nightingale's Nest, which received starred reviews from Kirkus and the Bulletin for the Center for Children’s Books, and The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy, which was the winner of the 2013 Writer’s League of Texas Book Award.  This is her picture book debut.
