I love to get new books to read with my children. They both love to be read to so much and Audrey Bunny is such a sweet book in both content and adorable pictures to be able to share with them. And of course, as the newest book in our house this has now become the one I read my preschool son over and over again by his request.
My favorite part of the book was the discussion questions at the end of the book. I don't often think to discuss the book after we finished reading it and how it affected them or reflects their lives, so seeing the questions at the end spark a conversation and gave me some insight in to something my son thought was wrong with him and how that made him feel. It was a good conversation that sparked him sharing his feelings and thoughts with me.
The drawings are so sweet and since my son's favorite color has been pink for about the last 6 months, he loved that the cover had a pink tree.
I thought the open-endedness of how Audrey got her smudge over her chest could leave it open for children to identify with anything on their body that they might view an am imperfection, whether it be something they were born with, something they acquired as a result of a medical procedure or accident or something that developed on their body over time (like a mole or other mark.)
