Oh, surprise boxes in the mail are so fun. One day last week I arrived home to a box on the table. It was a medium size box and I was a little puzzled about what could be in it. We weren’t expecting anything! But inside was this treasure of a book, Baby Wren and the Great Gift.
Immediately I slipped into my grand daughter’s room and showed the book to her. After taking a look at the cover of the book, she promptly picked up the toys she had been playing with and spread out her favorite blanket. We had a delightful storytime right then and there.
Baby Wren is a little bird, discovering the world around her little nest. Baby Wren looks at all the other creatures and wonders what is special about her. There are a few wonderful repeating phrases, that I was surprised to hear my grand daughter pick up on, very quickly. I love literature with rich language that adds depth to the illustrations and variety to the reader’s vocabulary! The illustrations in this book are rich, the colors soft, yet strong.
Towards the end of the story Baby Wren, overtaken by the beauty of the sunset, begins to sing…and finds her gift. A sweet story sowing the seeds of truth into young minds.
What a treat to receive this book from BookLookBloggers, Harper Collins Christian Publishing in exchange for this review.
The Baby Wren and the Great Gift, written by bestselling author Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrated by Jen Corace, is a celebration of all the wonderful gifts God has given us.
