Book Review and Giveaway- "Baby Wren and the Great Gift"




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. The tiny wren marvels at the incredible creatures around her, all the while wishing she had a special gift to share. As she takes in the beauty of the world around her, she discovers a unique talent that’s been inside her all along.


My Review:

This is a powerful story that is going to encourage all readers. We all have gifts and talents and sometimes it is hard to believe we have any.  As the story moves along we continue to see thanksgiving of other animals gifts as baby wren realizes she does have gifts.   This hard covered book is a quick read that many ages will enjoy.  I love the water color pictures that are warm yet bright.  By the end of the story we are celebrating Wren and her gifts.  It makes it an easy transition to discuss how everyone has different gifts and talents as we are all unique yet all made in the image of God.
