Bunny’s Shoebox Journey Book

Bunny’s Shoebox Journey brings the story of the Christmas Shoebox Appeal to life for our smallest learners.

Through this beautifully illustrated, heart-warming story, children learn how to put together a Christmas Shoebox, why sharing is a special type of kindness and the difference each shoebox makes to the boy or girl who receives it.

The story follows Bunny, from being bought by Sophie and her mum, to visiting pre-school and being put in a shoebox, to his journey across the ocean to Malawi where he is given to Beatrice.
