Nina the rabbit from Bell Town has a problem: she is kind, very shy, and has no friends to call her own. Determined as she is, she goes outside each day, hoping that one day she will find her new best friend. Each time Nina tries to make friends, she finds herself returning home crying and telling her mama what is happening with her.

In another town, Anna, the bold, friendly, and energetic rabbit from Carrotsville who you sure think has lots of friends, is just in the same situation as Nina. They both are from different towns and have no friends even though they both are wonderful rabbits.

Will Nina find a best friend to call her own? Or will she change who she is to have friends to call her own?

This story presents a closer look on how a child who struggles to have friends can be emotionally affected whether positively or negatively, depending on how a parent listens, nurtures, and encourages their child. Also, sometimes people may judge you by how different you look or act. But no matter how different you are, we all deserve to have friends.
