Book Review: "Audrey Bunny" by Angie Smith
Audrey is a stuffed bunny who is concerned that she won't be picked by anyone because of a mark she has over her heart. Even after Caroline picks her and then treasures her, she tries to hide the mark, fearing that Caroline won't love her anymore if she sees it.
Audrey continues to hide it until Caroline brings her to school for show-and-tell. After everyone sees the mark, Caroline tells Audrey that the spot is the very reason she chose Audrey, and how much she loves her.
A very simple story with an important message about loving people as they are.
The illustrations are very well done and convey the story very effectively.
