Review and Giveaway of Children's Book- Audrey Bunny

I love children's books!  With 4 kids, we have lots!
So when I saw the cover of this one...

Well, could you have resisted?  The cover is beautiful!  The story, even more beautiful!

Written by speaker and author Angie Smith (I Will Carry You, Mended), Audrey Bunny, 32 page hardback children's book, is a keeper!

When Caroline goes to the store to pick out a toy she chooses a bunny with a mark on it.  The bunny, quickly and lovingly named Audrey, spends her days trying to hide the flaw on her until she realizes that Caroline has already seen it.   Though she felt unworthy of being loved, Audrey realizes that she is loved dearly, just as she is.  This is such a sweet story to show children that they can be loved in spite of their "imperfections" and that God made us just the way we are.  We never have to hide from Him!  We as parents can use this story of unconditional love to point children towards God and His unconditional love for us without being preachy.  After reading the book to my youngest son, age 6, we were able to have a sweet conversation about how we chose him to be a part of our forever family and love him no matter what and how God chooses us and loves us no matter what and wants us to be a part of His family.  An important message for all, but maybe even more so for an adopted child.

Another thing that makes this book so special is the Parent Connection page at the end of the book.  It begins with having you read to your child Psalm 119:73- Your hands made me and formed me.  That is followed by 5 questions for you to ask your child to help facilitate a conversation on what you read and what they took away from the story.  There is also a fun activity recommended at he end for slightly older children.

  1. I have SO many favorite children's books it would be hard to pick just one but I do absolutely adore "Make Way for Ducklings" by Robert McCloskey. Thanks for the review and giveaway opportunity.

  2. I didn't realize that Angie Smith was writing children's books. This looks like a wonderful book!

  3. This looks cute. Our favorite book here is Brown Bear Brown Bear, it was the first book the kids would "read" on their own...really recite, but cute nonetheless.

  4. Looks like a cute book! I would love to have it to add to my collection. :)

  5. You aren't seriously asking us to list just one?! ;) My favorites include, "What God Has Always Wanted," "The Princess and the Kiss," "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs," "The Going to Bed Book," "Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile," and I could go on...

  6. We have so many favorites at our house! My 4 year old loves the Runaway Bunny. My 5 year old votes for How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? My 7 year old loves Andrew Henry's Meadow.
    And my 2 year old loves Ollie the Stomper

  7. There is no such thing as my favorite children's book. I love so many...
