This is the story of a the bunny in the middle. A bunny with the gentlest of eyes, living in a flower-filled world and tiny suits of armor, she gives and leads and notices so many little and important things about her family. She's a little bit of glue, a glowing little light, that holds things together, solves the sticky situations, makes everything - including herself- something very special.
A lovely book about families, about kindness, about being a bunny and about love.

This joyful picture book celebrates middle children and sibling love.
When you’re in the middle . . . you’re not the oldest, and you’re not the youngest. You are right in between. There’s someone bigger who helps you and someone smaller who needs you. From the middle, you can see both sides.
But being in the middle isn’t always easy―sometimes it’s hard to know what makes you special, or how to follow a path that’s just your own. Bunny in the Middle, this classic picture book from Anika A. Denise highlights the remarkable empathy of middles and the joys of self-acceptance, glowingly illustrated by New York Times-bestselling artist Christopher Denise.---from the publisher
