Baxter was the fastest bunny in the forest. His mind buzzed with thoughts and his body wanted to zoom! But sometimes he lost control of his buzz and his zoom, like when he rammed into the raccoons during the annual forest race.
With help from his uncle Barnaby, Baxter learns how to slow down his thoughts, be more aware of what is happening around him, and relax his body. At the next forest race, Baxter finds that his buzz is just right!
