I Believe Bunny by Tish Rabe, illustrated by Frank Endersby
"Once upon a time in a land hard to find lived the I Believe Bunny who was funny and kind."
Thus begins the story of a sweet little bunny who loved his little home, even when it rained! One day it rained all day long and the little bunny was getting a little tired of all the wetness, when he hears a small mouse struggling in a river crying out for help because she couldn't swim.
Would the Bunny save her?
What I Thought:
A lovely, uplifting story about when you believe in yourself, ask God for help, and have faith there is no end to what you can do.
This story is based on the verse Philippians 4:13: I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Rabe did a lovely job creating a sweet story told through a poem showing how faith can give anyone the strength to do the impossible. Endersby's illustrations provide a wonderful accompaniment using a soft color palette and a sense of movement.
Overall, a delightful book.
