AudreyBunny-BHKids-webBest-selling author Angie Smith’s first children’s book, Audrey Bunny, has been listed by Thriving Family, a Focus on the Family magazine, as a top-recommended “family-friendly” picture book of 2013.

“For many years, my family has been blessed by the incredible ministry of Focus on the Family, and having my work acknowledged by an organization I esteem so highly is a tremendous honor,” Smith said of the recommendation.

Known best for her best-selling trade books, including Mended, I Will Carry You and What Women Fear, the author has ventured into children’s books this year. Through the Audrey Bunny book, which teaches unconditional love, children will learn that nothing about them happens by chance, that they are wonderfully and fearfully made, and that they are made in God’s image.

The book is named after the Smiths’ infant daughter who lived only a few hours after she was born and is dedicated to her.

The story is illustrated by Breezy Brookshire, the artist behind Clementine Pattern Co., Noble Rose Press and the Breezy Tulip Studio.

Audrey Bunny continues to be a blessing of a book, and we are incredibly thankful for Focus on the Family’s support of Angie and this message,” B&H Kids Publisher Dan Lynch said.
