Disclosure: I was given a copy of this book to review, the opinions and viewpoint on this book are all mine.
I had a chance to review a wonderful kids book called, Audrey Bunny, by Angie Smith and to say I enjoyed it would be an understatement!This book has a timeless message for all of us, even with our imperfections we are perfectly made just the way we are.
When I hear statistics like this it breaks my heart…
- Among high school students, 44 percent of girls and 15 percent of guys are attempting to lose weight.
- Over 70 percent of girls age 15 to 17 avoid normal daily activities, such as attending school, when they feel bad about their looks.
- More than 40 percent of boys in middle school and high school regularly exercise with the goal of increasing muscle mass.
- 75 percent of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities like cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking, or disordered eating. This compares to 25 percent of girls with high self-esteem.
What those statistics tell me is our young people are not getting the message, often enough, or soon enough that they are perfect, and beautiful just the way they are.
This book may not be the answer all by itself, but I hope that it, and books like it will definitely help our young people rethink their worth and embrace this whole idea that they are already beautiful and that people love them and will love them, even with all of their imperfections.
Audrey Bunny is about a stuffed animal who isn’t perfect. She has a scar and she hides it hoping that someone won’t see it. Every time Audrey is looked over by someone at the store, she feels worse and worse about herself.
She comes up with a plan, and it works or so she thinks…
This book was so cute, I loved all of the characters, and I can’t wait to give a copy to my niece and nephews. The book has a great message and a great meaning, and I would encourage you to pick it up.
It’s well worth your money.
