In his touching picture book, master storyteller Max Lucado reveals that each one of us was created for a special purpose. The Oak Inside the Acorn is a heartwarming parable that encourages children to be the best they can be for God. This parallel to the bestselling book for adults, Cure for the Common Life, reminds parents to focus on their children's God-given abilities, while Children will see that all they need to do is to "Just be the tree God made you to be."
Little Acorn sees himself as very small and he's unsure of what he's supposed to do in life. Eventually, he grows into Big Oak, but he still wonders about his purpose. Though he tries as hard as he can, he can't grow oranges like his friends the orange trees, or produce beautiful flowers like his friends Pink Petunia or Rosie. But finally, he discovers that his mighty branches were created for a very special purpose! Recommended for ages 5 to 10.
Invoking the theme that we all need to discover our God-given abilities and follow God's plan for us, Lucado's (The Crippled Lamb) gentle parable parallels the lives of a tree and a girl. A tiny acorn shaken from its mother's strong branches becomes a mighty oak-not by trying to be like other trees and flowers, but by heeding the mother oak's sage advice: "Just be the tree God made you to be." Likewise, a girl does some soul-searching of her own-often under the protective shade of the mighty oak-as she grows up and prepares to make her way in the world. Suffused with echoes of The Giving Tree, Lucado's story will likely reverberate with a wide audience. Angelini's hazy, bucolic oils capture flora and fauna at their sunlit best, and will likely have readers longing for a stroll among trees and flowers. Ages 5-10. (Nov.)
