The I Believe Bunny

by Tish Rabe and Illustrated by Frank Endersby

The I Believe Bunny published by Thomas Nelson Publishers is a children's book about a little bunny, a rainy day adventure, and the power of prayer. The little bunny faces a dilemma in which he is in desperate need of help. He calls out for help and no one comes. He then prays to God for help. I would recommend this book for kids of any age, but the message may better be understood for kids 2+.

This book is beautifully illustrated and the story couldn’t be sweeter. The messages that this book conveys are two-fold. The first being to give glory/thanks to God for what he has given you. The second is that you should call upon God for help. I really liked the introduction scripture of Philippians 4:13: “I can do everything through him who gives me strength.” What a great message to convey to any child.

This book is written in poetic form which makes it a fun book to read through. Tish Rabe brings the characters to life with the help of illustrator Frank Endersby, and she really conveys the desperation and urgency of bunny’s needs. I highly recommend this book.
