Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

It was hard for Little Acorn to believe he would ever be a big, strong oak tree.

Soon Little Acorn grew into Little Oak. But now what was he to do? He couldn't grow oranges like the orange tree or flowers like the rose bush. He just grew and grew until he became Big Oak, and his branches were big and strong-but still he didn't know what he was to do. Then one day Big Oak found that his strong branches were just right for a very special purpose. The Oak Inside the Acorn is the story of the miracle inside each of us. For within every child is the special person God created, just waiting to grow.

    This review was written for The Oak Inside the Acorn.
    I could not finish reading this touching story to my daughter; I found myself moved to tears. Its message is so powerful; it is impossible not to be touched by it. Adults can learn from it as well. Each and every single one of us is special in God's eyes, and He wants us to become vessels into His loving hands. This story is a must read. It is a blessing. Thank you, Max Lucado, for such a wonderful story.

    My grand daughter was sent this book and we could not get thru the first reading without tearing up it was so touching. We sent this to all the kids we know for Christmas as a wonderful reminder of how God works.
