“Audrey Bunny” by Angie Smith, book review

“Audrey Bunny” By Angie Smith and illustrated by Breezy Brookshire, book review

This precious children’s book has beautiful illustrations and a sweet message. The story centers around a stuffed bunny who is ashamed of a smudge on her chest. She knows that many children have not chosen her from the toy store because of it, so she has learned to hide it. Caroline choses the bunny and names her Audrey. From that day on they are constantly together. Audrey is clever at inventing ways to hide her mark and she thinks Caroline does not see it. But during show and tell the mark is revealed to the whole class. Caroline teaches Audrey that she loves her in spite of the mark.

This book is easy to read to children preschool age and up. It would be a wonderful resource to teach children about others who are a little different: physical handicap, race, or scars. The hand drawn illustrations are beautiful and lend a softness to the story.
