Quick summary of Audrey Bunny. Audrey Bunny is a sweet little stuffed animal 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.
Audrey Bunny is wonderful, discussion provoking story. As the girls share read Audrey Bunny, I watched their reactions. Both girls predicted that Audrey would find a home--and were pleased when she did. Then, I watched them both turn sad for Audrey as the bunny worried about venturing off to her owner's school for show and tell.
"I really hope that the kids don't laugh at Audrey," My youngest daughter shook her head--anticipating the worst. "She just has a little spot--she's still a good bunny, "
Luckily, the story ended as my girls hoped it would. Sadly, both girls are all too aware that such a warm, happy ending is not always the case in their daily classroom interactions.
Not only did Audrey Bunny lead us into wonderful questions and discussion concerning God's love within The Parent Connection section of the book--it led us to some "life in the classroom" discussions as well. Acceptance and tolerance at school and in extra-curricular activities are not as commonplace as either of my girls would prefer--and becoming less so as my oldest moves through the grades.
Would I recommend Audrey Bunny? This is a wonderful, meaningful, children's book that should be shared! It opens up so many discussion opportunities that make it perfectly appropriate for older elementary school aged children as well--especially girls struggling with self esteem.
