Audrey Bunny by Angie Smith: Review & Giveaway

God made us. God loves us. He is coming to rescue us.

This is the Epic line of what our church is teaching to our entire children's ministry right now. I couldn't help but just constantly repeat this as I read and reviewed this book by Angie Smith, wife of Todd Smith (lead singer of Dove Award winning group Selah). Angie is also best-selling author of Mended, I Will Carry You, and What Women Fear, and one of the most popular speakers and blog writers in the country. She holds a Master’s degree in Developmental Psychology from Vanderbilt University and lives with her husband and daughters in Nashville, TN.

Audrey Bunny is such a 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.

I just love how Angie takes the analogy of a basket of stuffed toys and compares them to our own lives. We are all wonderfully made. He chose us. And we are all special. All children need to hear this. We have a cradle of those toys and believe me, all are precious in my six year old daughter's eyes, just as each child is precious in His sight.

I am so excited to be able to offer one of my readers one of their very own copies of this book to read to a special child/children in their lives. All you have to do is tell me WHO you will read to in a MANDATORY Disqus comment, then come back and put your entries on the easy Rafflecopter form. 

Written by: Angie Smith
Publisher: B&H Publishing
Hardcover with jacket: 32 pages
Release Date: October 1, 2013

*note from ShaRhonda: after writing this post, God led me to further read Angie's blog. I ran across a post. Audrey was actually the name of Angie and Todd's 4th child. God directed them to an actual bunny just like in the above book. Read more at her blog and this post.
