Aubrey Bunny Book Review (Flyby Blog Promotions)

I read Audrey Bunny in exchange for review from FlyBy Blog Promotions. The book was written by Angie Smith and illustrated by Breezy Brookshire. The book was published by  BH Publishing. I received a hardback copy of the book. This post contains Amazon affiliate links and images.

About the book:

Audrey Bunny feels she won't be as loved with imperfections. She eventually learns God loves everyone, including Audrey. 

About the author:

Angie Smith is the wife of Todd Smith, the lead singer of Selah. She is also the author of Mended, I will Carry You, and What Women Fear. Angie holds a Masters in Developmental Psychology from Vanderbilt University. She currently lives with her husband and kids in Tennessee.

My Review:

The book starts out with Audrey sitting in a barrel full of other toys in a toy store, waiting to be bought and played with. She wants to be perfect for a little girl or boy, but she keeps getting overlooked.

How many times have we tried to be perfect for someone, only to be overlooked because of a perceived imperfection? Maybe we changed our behavior and attitudes to impress someone, who was simply not interested.

Audrey was imperfect, but being imperfect does not mean she does not deserve love. We all have imperfections and flaws. We deserve love. Audrey thought if she kept her imperfections hidden, then the little girl, Caroline, would love her because Audrey would be considered perfect. She thought if Caroline saw her imperfection, she would be returned to the store. What happens next..Read the book.

At the end of the book, there is a parent connection, a mini bible study using Psalms 119:73.

Your hands made me and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands (

There is a reading, then questions, followed by action. This was a quick read. The book was well-written and had beautiful images.
