Buster was sure he was the fastest bunny in the meadow. But during a race at summer camp, nothing goes as planned and Buster gets tripped up.

After his epic fall, Buster’s older sister, Ivy, helps him see that failure is an opportunity to grow. As Buster remembers God’s love, he is able to let go of others’ opinions and accept that it is okay to try your best but not always be the best.

Enjoy this reading of Buster’s Ears Trip Him Up, read and illustrated by Joe Hox.
