Juniper and the Oak

Juniper Bunny lives next to a farm with her family and loves her favourite oak tree. One day she is dismayed to find her tree losing its leaves! An enchanting story of learning about and discovering the delights of the four seasons. Juniper learns to adapt and embrace the changes that each season brings, from vibrant autumn leaves to glistening white snow, spring’s fragrant blooms and summer’s sunny days.
