Book Review and GIVEAWAY: Audrey Bunny, ends 10/21

*Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one or more of the products or services mentioned above for free in the hope that I would mention it on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe would be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

Audrey Bunny is a children's book that deals with uniqueness, and one scared little bunny who believes that no one will "take her home" because she has a mark on her. She then meets a little girl who names her Audrey and loves her unconditionally, although Audrey still tries to cover up her mark, at first.

Official synopsis:
From best-selling women’s author Angie Smith (I Will Carry You, Mended) comes this 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 thought this was a wonderful book, especially for children, as it talks about how you shouldn't be afraid to be yourself. It does have religious tones, including a "more discussion" section at the end, but overall I didn't think it was very religious - anyone regardless of your religion would enjoy this book, and enjoy sharing it with your child or grandchild.

The pictures were also very well-drawn in this book, and it's a hardcover children's book that would make a great addition to any collection.

You can win a copy of Audrey Bunny by entering via the Rafflecopter below! Contest ends on Monday, October 21st, at 11:59pm EST, and winner will be notified via email on October 22nd and have 24 hours to respond, or an alternate winner will be chosen. U.S./Canada only, please.

Good luck!

  18. I realize this is far to late to enter, I just have to share the crazy coincidence I keep noticing with how these random dates seem to coincide with my own experience. October 15th was the day we were unable to hear the heart beat of our sweet little angel at our normal doctors appointment. Than October 21st was the day we were in the hospital delivering our daughter at 24 weeks. Finding the stories of people like Angie Smith has helped me greatly and she is truly inspiring.
