Do I even matter? A little bunny questions where it fits in, and is gently reminded:

At the time of your birth
God made you with purpose; you'll always have worth.
No matter how big, no matter how small,
God made you unique. This world needs you all.

This is a story of Kona, a young bunny who learns that each of us is fearfully and wonderfully made by God.

Full of playful rhymes, vibrant landscapes, adorable animals, and uplifting phrases, Kona is sure to encourage and inspire your child and you and for years to come.


John Barnett grew up in Chanhassen, Minnesota. After graduating from college in North Carolina, this small-town kid married a world-traveling adventurist, and they moved into a camper van, blazing unpaved trails across the United States.

John's imagination sprang to life on four wheels. He crafted little stories to send on postcards to his niece and nephew from every stop, and from these postcard writings came Kona.

John lives with his wife, Malia, and their pup, Luna, and together they travel often.
