Audrey Bunny by Angie Smith, Book review (AND GIVEAWAY!)

Publisher: B&H Kids (October 1, 2013)
ISBN-13: 978-1433680458


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.

Note to Readers: Great news!  Audrey Bunny is now #1 in Christian Children's Books at Amazon.com!

Here are my thoughts:

By far one of the most meaningful children stories I have read in a long time, AUDREY BUNNY reminded me immediately of another time, another little girl and her own bunny...This review is for us Dearest...

Lovingly illustrated by talented Breezy Brookshire this story reminds us that whilst we might have some imperfections, we are all children of God and loved!

AUDREY BUNNY will capture each child's imagination (Warning: as a direct result, parents might find themselves buying a soon to be much loved stuffed friend!) as we see that Caroline knew exactly what she wanted when stepping in the toy shoppe! 
Loved at first sight, AUDREY BUNNY is so happy to be adopted by Caroline but very much afraid her own imperfection once discovered means she will be rejected.

My favourite moment:
'Bunny peeked over the animals in the barrel. It was her! It was the same little girl from a few days ago. She straightened her ears as high as they would go and squeezed her eyes shut as the little girl walked in her direction. She was too nervous to look. Could today be the day she got picked?'

Author Angie Smith finds just the right words to reassure little ones (and big ones) that we are special in our own way!

An amazing work of love, geared for 4 to 8 years old, it is a story you will treasure and hopefully share with all your loved ones! This one Folks is meant to be on a special shelf to be read over and over!

5 Stars!! 
Note to Readers: This is # 2 in my list of favourite Holiday gifts!
