“A heartfelt message of patriotism, perseverance, and hope…I love this book!”
Eric Blehm, New York Times Bestselling Author of Fearless, Legend, and The Only Thing Worth Dying For
“An inspiring story of patriotism for the youngest reader.”
David Venditta, author of Tragedy at Chu Lai
Sisters Sarah and Hannah Dautel bring mature topics down to a child’s level in this one-of-a-kind picture book. Participating in the grand tradition of rabbit stories for children — from Peter Rabbit to Watership Down — they portray a brave young warrior who is injured as he trains to be a soldier. The profound message of the story is offset with gentle humor and realistic detail.
