Audrey Bunny by Angie Smith is one of those books you read as an adult that you wish you had as a child.
When I was little, my favorite stuffed animal was this old tattered brown bunny rabbit. I took her everywhere I went. One time, I forgot her when I went to spend a weekend at my grandma’s and my mom drove two hours just to bring me that bunny. She knew I couldn’t sleep without her. I guess that memory was what really struck a chord with me while reading Audrey Bunny. After I finished Angie’s story, however, there was so much more that resonated with me, even as an adult.
Breezy Bookshire’s illustrations are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen in a children’s book. The moment I opened Audrey Bunny I was completely enchanted. I actually, please don’t laugh, had the impulse to hug this book. It reminded me of a simpler time when my biggest concerns were what outfits my dolls would wear and what was the best way to hang twinkle lights around my room.
More about Audrey Bunny…
Audrey Bunny doesn’t think anyone will ever love her. Blemished by a spot on her chest, Audrey feels she’s just not good enough. And then Caroline comes along, a little girl who accepts Audrey just the way she is. To Caroline, it doesn’t matter that Audrey isn’t perfect, because the truth is that she is perfect to Caroline.
Why I love and recommend Audrey Bunny…
This book is a true keepsake for mothers and daughters. So many of us deal will feelings of inadequacy, like we just aren’t worthy to be loved. The message behind Audrey Bunny is one we all need to hear—the truth that we are all valued by our Creator. I am so looking forward to sharing Audrey Bunny with my sisters and friends. I can just see the worn and faded version of this book as I read it to my grand-babies someday. Some books come and go, while others you keep and cherish forever. Audrey Bunny is one of those stories. It would make a lovely addition to your home library or a priceless gift for someone you love.
