Book Review: The I Believe Bunny by Tish Rabe

Meet The I Believe Bunny, star of a delightful new series from Thomas Nelson. When Little Mouse is in big trouble, Bunny is the only one there to help. But, he’s small and unsure of himself. What can he do? In desperation, Bunny prays. He calls on God to help, and soon he discovers that prayer works.

It’s never too early to help kids learn to act on their faith, and that’s exactly what The I Believe Bunny does. Best-selling author Tish Rabe creates a simple rhyming story that illustrates Philippians 4:13, “I can do everything through him who gives me strength.” The message is skillfully summed up at the end of the story without being didactic or preachy. Young children are sure to identify with Bunny’s child-like character and learn along with him that kids aren’t too small to put their faith into action.

Frank Endersby’s pastel illustrations, reminiscent of Beatrix Potter’s style, are soft and gentle making this a good bedtime read; however, they lack detail and may not hold some children’s interest.

The I Believe Bunny is a worthwhile addition to your child’s bookshelf. Together, you will read it again and again as you reinforce the idea of practicing faith in God. Look for the second book in this series, Sharing With You, available July 14.

By Max Lucado, Published by Thomas Nelson
Max Lucado has a unique way with words, and his children's book Hermie A Common Caterpillar is no exception. With simple text and bright, watercolor illustrations, the story of Hermie unfolds.

Hermie wonders why he looks and feels so common. Whenever he asks God why, God simply answers, "I'm not finished with you yet." Then, one day, Hermie feels very tired. He gets into his cozy, leafy bed, and he sleeps. And while Hermie sleeps a transformation takes place. When he wakes up, Hermie discovers that God has done something grand. You can guess what it is. Every caterpillar that lives to adulthood knows the end of the story.

Parents, please share this book and its powerful message with your children. We are all special because God loves us, and He has a unique purpose for our lives. Whenever we slump into feeling ordinary, we know that we have hope because . . .God isn't finished with us yet!
