Audrey Bunny ~ a Book Review (And Giveaway!)

My children have all three had toys that were special to them which they still cherish. My middle daughter's favorite lovey has been a stuffed bunny named Bunny, so I knew even though she would be a little old for this story that I wanted to read it. I actually sent her on a little photo shoot to capture a picture of the book with her Bunny, and she read the sweet story, too.

About Audrey Bunny
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.

[Also included]: The Parent Connection (last page of the book) shares discussion questions and activities reinforcing God's love for us.

The love of God is woven into this story about an imperfect bunny who is loved even when that imperfection is clearly visible. Human emotions are given to Audrey Bunny in a way that children can relate to.
"What little girl would want a messed up toy?"

Selah has been one of my favorite music groups for a long time. I loved hearing the family share about their childhood as missionary kids. I cried with the lead singer as he shared about the loss he and his wife experienced, their little daughter Audrey, when we watched them in concert. And then I marveled at the Women of Faith Conference as Angie Smith had already started sharing how that sadness was turning to joy as she used the depth of her grief in reaching out to others. She continues to share her love of her daughter Audrey in this story Audrey Bunny with her touching dedication.

Angie Smith is the wife of Todd Smith (lead singer of Dove Award winning group Selah), best-selling author of MendedI Will Carry You, and What Women Fear, and one of the most popular speakers and blog writers in the country. She holds a Master’s degree in Developmental Psychology from Vanderbilt University and lives with her husband and daughters in Nashville, TN.

Written by: Angie Smith
Publisher: B&H Publishing
Hardcover with jacket:  32 pages 

The book is beautifully illustrated by Breezy Brookshire. The colorful illustrations fill each page, but my favorite are the sweet drawings inside the front and back covers that seem to continue the story of a little girl and her stuffed friend.
