The I Believe Bunny

Illustrator: Frank Endersby
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
ISBN: 978-1-4003-1476-8
Genre: Inspirational/children

Bunny lives in a beautiful glen of flowers and sunshine, but one day, the sun refused to shine and it rained for hours! Bunny’s friends invited him to come play someplace sunny and dry, but Bunny didn’t want to leave his beautiful rainy glen. So, as he wandered around in the wet land, he heard a mouse calling for help.

The mouse was caught in a raging river and would surely drown unless Bunny did something quick to rescue her. But when he called for help, all his friends were far away. Bunny did the best he could, but he seemed doomed to fail, until he decided to turn to God in prayer.

Immediately, God answered and He showed Bunny how he could be a friend indeed and help someone in need.

THE I BELIEVE BUNNY is an absolutely adorable tale about the power of prayer. The book is beautifully illustrated and the rhyming tale is easy to follow and hold a child’s interest. I read the book right away to my seven-year-old and four-year-old daughters and they both loved the story and wanted it read over and over.

Not only is the book engaging, but it also teaches children the value of prayer, and how God answers prayer. I highly recommend THE I BELIEVE BUNNY. $9.99 hardcover.
