Audrey Bunny {Children’s Book Review}

Disclosure: As a member of the Flyby Promotions Blogger Network I received the product mentioned to facilitate my review. Regardless, I only recommend products I feel would be good for my readers. My opinions are my own and those of my family.

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.

In today’s society it’s hard to feel comfortable just being who you are – especially for young girls. They’re often told what to wear (and modest is NOT it!), “thin is in,” the hairstyle to have, etc. Even little girls as young as my daughter, who is only 5, start to feel the pressure! It wasn’t that long ago that she cut her hair because she has curly hair and “wanted her hair to be pretty.” I was heartbroken for her. I LOVE her blonde curly hair! I would love it if it were any other color and wavy or straight, too! What a wonderful book Audrey Bunny is to remind young girls that they are special just the way they are! God made them special, and they are unique and beautiful!

In the book Audrey Bunny has a mark that kept her from being chosen by other children, and once she WAS chosen she did everything she could to hide her mark. Eventually she discovers she was actually chosen BECAUSE of that mark! It is such a beautiful portrayal of how we see ourselves versus how we are seen – particularly by our Maker. At the end of the book there are even questions to spark a discussion about points in the story. Our boys sat in on the story as well, but unfortunately, they weren’t sure how to answer the questions. Because of our kids’ special needs social type questions can be harder for them to answer. It actually took us a while to discover the reason sweet Aurora had cut her hair all those months ago because she had a hard time expressing it!

Do you know what else I love about Audrey Bunny? It doesn’t just have to be about physical appearance. It can also be a great reminder that our children are special and wonderfully made by God, too, even though they may not be like other children because of their special needs. God created them to be unique. In fact, each child is unique, aren’t they? That’s how God designed us, and this story is such a great reminder that it’s not only OK – it’s how it’s supposed to be!

We really like Audrey Bunny, and I think it’s a great book to share with young girls because I think it holds an extremely important message!
