About the Book
Barn Sanctuary is more than a home for the rescued farm animals, it's their family. But can they help the new arrival, Buttercup, overcome her grief and anxiety to accept her new home?

Each of the Barn Sanctuary animals are eager to meet the newest arrival, Buttercup the cow, and show her all the fun things they can do together as a family. But Buttercup doesn't want to play--in fact, she doesn't want anything to do with the other animals. With a lot of love and understanding, the animals work together to help Buttercup discover she's part of a new family and can leave her old fears behind.

A positive message about friendship, kindness, and understanding others, children everywhere will learn they're never alone in big life changes.
