The Littlest Acorn
The littlest acorn wants to grow big and strong. As a sapling, she notices tall pines and colorful maples nearby. In comparing herself to them, her self-esteem withers, and she loses her zest for life. It takes a little bird building a nest to show the little oak tree the true value of her shape, color, size and spirit.
This engaging book teaches early grade school children to appreciate their natural gifts, especially at critical stages of socialization. It can be used by parents, teachers, librarians and anyone else who wants to inspire children to overcome the urge to compare themselves to others in order to determine their worth and value.
Ultimately, it shows children the path to true contentment – discovering their unique gifts (what’s in their acorn), developing them and then sharing them with the world.
