A delightful children's book! GIVEAWAY & My review of "Audrey Bunny"

Audrey Bunny

about the book....

From best-selling women’s author Angie Smith (I Will Carry You, Mended) comes this sweet children’s book about a stuffed animal named Audrey Bunny who fears her imperfections make her unworthy of a little girl’s love. She'll learn the truth soon enough, and young readers will learn that everyone is special and wonderfully made by God.

my review....

The best way to describe "Audrey Bunny"? Simply delightful! The moment the book came into my home, my daughters clamored to be the first to read it! They oohed and aahed over the wonderful illustrations, which are colorful and filled with life. The drawings are a perfect match for the story that accompanies them, and my girls thought the bunny was so adorable they wish they had that same stuffed animal in real life - smudge and all! The little girl, Caroline, who stars in the story along with Audrey, is a sweet little girl who helps Audrey learn an incredibly important life lesson: she is wonderfully made, just the way she is. The story is well-written, and my children had no problem following the story line and grasping the deeper truths of the story, that they themselves are beautiful and wonderful, complete with their flaws, and that God loves them the way they are! As a parent, I really liked the "parent connection" at the end of the book, which includes some discussion questions and activities that relate to the story. I went over the questions with my own children, and they were easily able to articulate the truths contained in the pages of the story. Overall, this story will be a blessing not only for the children the book is written for, but also for the parents or grandparents who read the book along with them! We can all use a reminder that we have been wonderfully made by God!

I am always a big fan of stories that not only capture my children's attention, but teach them God's truth at the same time. I highly recommend this story and award it 5 out of 5 stars.
