"Audrey Bunny" Children's Book Review & Giveaway! (11/10)

*Disclosure: I was provided a copy of the following book in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated in any other way. All opinions are my own.
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.
 
About the Author

She holds a Master’s degree in Developmental Psychology from Vanderbilt University and lives with her husband and daughters in Nashville, TN
 


My Review:
"Audrey Bunny" is such a sweet book with an awesome message!  I couldn't help but think of the classic children's book, "Corduroy", as I read this.  There were several similarities between the two books...each book tells of a stuffed animal in a store hoping to find a home yet each has a flaw that they think is keeping them from being bought.  The stories each take a different direction, though, and I have to say that I love the direction "Audrey Bunny" takes.  It shares the message of God's love in a way that children can understand.  "Audrey Bunny" also ends with a "Parent Connection" that is a guide for parents to discuss how God created us and loves us just the way we are.

I have to mention the amazing illustrations too!  They really add something special to the book.  Many times I'll just read through books without paying much attention to the pictures, but I found myself stopping quite often as I was reading and admiring how sweet the illustrations were.

I highly recommend Audrey Bunny to everyone, young and old!  It has a message that young ones need to hear and one that the rest of us need to be reminded of. ;-)
