He's sad to leave his friends behind. Despite a scary storm and grueling journey, Robbie perseveres. Robbie rescues Ben, proving not only his courage, but how much he loves his teasing older brother. When Robbie finally lands in sunny Florida, he has matured and gained confidence. He's ready to make new friends. Even Ben has a new appreciation for his little brother! "Robbie To The Rescue!" will ease a child's anxiety about facing life's challenges, as well as strengthen the bonds of sibling love and loyalty.
