My thoughts:
This is a cute children's story about a little stuffed bunny who fears she will never find a forever home.  She worries that her imperfection will keep her from being loved and accepted.  Children will come along on Audrey's journey where she learns that she is completely loved and accepted just as she is.

Each of us is fearfully and wonderfully made by our Almighty God and He loves us just as we are.

This story is charming to read, in and of itself.  But it also serves a greater purpose, to teach children that God created us just the way we are and that are differences are what makes us special.  Jesus truly does love the little children.

In addition to the story, the illustrations are absolutely precious.

This delightful story captures the beauty of childhood and a child's desire to be accepted and loved just the way they are.
