I was recently offered the chance to receive a free copy of the book Audrey Bunny in exchange for an honest review on this blog. Written by Angie Smith, this is a heart-warming story of a little stuffed bunny with a visible physical flaw. Feeling unworthy because of her imperfection, this bunny soon learns the true meaning of love after being picked by a sweet little girl.
Strong storyline and gorgeous color illustrations are sure to make this book a favorite with your early elementary-aged children. The message of God's love is present, but isn't overbearing or misplaced. Anyone who had a special "lovie" as a child will be able to relate to both the little girl and the bunny.
I brought this book to share with my LMCA first graders and it was a huge success. We had a nice discussion afterwards about our "lovies" and how they make us feel regardless of what they look like. The back page of the book contains activities and questions to further the learning. My students enjoyed talking about Audrey Bunny and Caroline. The children then illustrated their favorite story parts for their reading response journals.
I think this book would be a wonderful addition to a Christian curriculum in a special needs classroom, or to teach children about those with special needs. We all have differences, some are physical, some are not. God's love shines for us regardless of these differences.
Audrey Bunny is available on the B&H Publishing Group Website for $14.99 in a hardback cover. I have been offered an additional copy of Audrey Bunny for one of my readers. Simply leave a comment and let me know who you would share this wonderful book with. Margaret will choose a winner on Monday October 28, 2013. Good Luck!
I received a free copy of the hardcover book, Audrey Bunny, in exchange for an honest review on this blog. I received no other compensation.
