Audrey Bunny Book Review and Giveaway

*This post contains affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure Page for details.


Are you on the search for good quality Christian fiction books for your children? Then I highly suggest checking out the books from B&H Publishing.  B&H Publishing believes, "Every Word Matters™", so they seek to provide intentional, Bible-centered content that positively impacts the hearts and minds of people, inspiring them to build a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ. I have reviewed books in the past from B&H Publishing like the Hey God.....Jonah book and am always blown away with the terrific writing, illustrations and content.

A moms review:
We received a copy of Audry Bunny to review. The book is a 32 page, full color hardcover book with a jacket. The author is Angie Smith and the illustrator is Breezy Brookshire.

This was such a fabulous heart-warming book and teaches a very important lesson.You will fall in love with the beautiful illustrations!


The book is about a stuffed bunny who has been sitting in a bin at a store for quite sometime due to a smudgy defect over her heart which makes her imperfect.  Because of the smudge children look her over and go for the other stuffed animals instead. Bunny is sure she will live in the bin forever. One day a little red-haired girl named Caroline enters the store and picks up the bunny, but sadly the little girl puts the bunny down and leaves store. Bunny is sad and alone again. A few days later the little girl comes back and suprisingly picks out the little bunny as her birthday present. She names the bunny Audrey after her grandmother. Audrey Bunny is afraid to let Caroline see her ugly smudge so she tries every way she can to hide it. One day though Caroline takes Audrey Bunny to school with her for show and tell. Audrey is devastated and scared that Caroline and all the other children will find out about her smudge? But in the end Audrey Bunny finds out that Caroline picked her because of the smudge.

The book ends with a fabulous verse, "I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. Psalm 139:14.

The story teaches children that you don't have to be perfect to be loved and that being different is okay. This was very a important lesson for my daughter to hear because like me she suffers from low self esteem. We discussed how we should love every one regardless of how they look. We also talked about how God picked us to be His children and that we are all special and wonderfully made by Him. And that He doesn't care about our faults or imperfections.

Both my children 7 year old daughter and 6 year old son loved the book. This is a great book for children and made the perfect bedtime story.

In the back of the book is a little bonus feature called, "Parent Connection." This little section includes an important verse for children to remember as well as a verse to read with your children. There are also some questions to think about and discuss with your children and a fun little activity for children to do as well
