This adventurous picture book is just right for toddlers who may be reluctant to embrace new experiences.

Rabbit loves staying close to home where it is warm and safe and cozy. After all, the outside has things with feathers and scales and horns and hooves! It's certainly better—and safer—for a rabbit to stick to what she knows best: home sweet home.

But when rabbit spots a particularly juicy carrot just outside of her comfort zone, she tumbles into a whole new world she wasn't expecting!

Author-illustrator Jennifer Meserve has created a reassuring tale of exploration that will inspire boldness and curiosity. Paired with soft, colorful illustrations, this beautiful picture book also features a community of endearing animals and important social emotional learning themes of friendship, kindness, and bravery.

Praise For…

★ "This sweet tale may encourage some youngsters to face new experiences with less trepidation."Booklist, Starred Review

"Meserve tells a wonderful tale of unexpected adventure that demonstrates the fun of trying new things. The digital and mixed media illustrations are delicate with mostly warm, calming colors and scenes bathed in soft light. However, the spreads showing Rabbit with her new companions are more vibrant, underscoring the excitement of novelty. . . . A gentle story about the joyful discoveries and courage that can be found beyond one’s comfort zone."—Kirkus Reviews
