Thank you, Thomas Nelson, for sending me "I Believe Bunny" by Tish Rabe. What a delightful new series that teaches children how to put their faith into action. I absolutely love this book! In my opinion, it is one of the best well-written and illustrated picture books... so adorable and inspirational. I would say the book is for ages 4-8 but toddlers will enjoy it, too. Well, to be honest with you, I did read it to my husband and we both agreed that this book is a winner. As Grandparents, we're looking forward to reading more books by Tish to our Grandchildren!
* Book Description
Children will identify with Bunny and learn along with him that God is always there to help. Prayer works! Little Mouse is in trouble and Bunny is the only one nearby to help her. But, Bunny is too small. He has to set aside his own fear and trust in God. By putting his faith into action, Bunny is able to help Little Mouse and save the day.
Not only does this precious book teach the importance of calling on God for our every need, it helps children remember to be thankful for God's work in their lives.
This book first starts with a quote from scripture, one of my favorites, Philippians 4:13 "I can do everything through Him who gives me strength." Then we are introduced to the main character Bunny who is so thankful to live in a flower-filled glen. Like so many of us, he wishes it would stop raining, he says, "I think that's enough!"
The I Believe Bunny is an easy read due to the author's gift of rhyme. What an excellent example of rhyme found in this wonderful picture book.
