A bear and a bunny discover relationships can have their ups and downs.

Background: I had started this book as a first year anniversary gift for my girlfriend but as the story suggest we had complications in our relationship and ended up separating. I decided to finish the story and give it to her for Valentine's Day. She loved it and now we're back together and stronger than ever. Writing this book really helped me not only to express to my bunny how much she meant to me but also to look at our relationship from a third person point of view. Thank you Story Jumper for publicizing my book and thank you to all the people who have taken the time to read It.

Follow Logan and Lucy in this fun, easy-to-read picture book on kindness. It was viewed by the 2nd graders at CCDS, and enjoyed for it's simplicity, while allowing children to relate to several aspects of the story.

Recommended age group: 5-8 years

Ask the reader if they have done something kind for someone today, and if so, what? Also encourage them to read the story to you and point out the hidden ladybug.

This is my first book, and I basically just experimented with the features StoryJumper has to offer. I decided to keep it short, but better stories are yet to come! Constructive criticism welcome :)
