The Littlest Acorn by Lisa Lentino - ADVISABLE

Lentino, Lisa The Littlest Acorn, illustrations by Connie Lovett.  PICTURE BOOK.  Christian Faith Publishing, 2017.  $14.  9781640796195.

The little acorn has grown into a beautiful young oak tree.  When she sees older trees of different varieties, she gets a little jealous and tries to be something she isn’t.  It is only when she finds a new purpose, sheltering a nest of bird eggs, that she realizes that what she can offer is even better than just good enough.

Is it bad of me to say I was pleasantly surprised how good this little self-published picture book is?  Lentino’s heart-felt story is sweet and tender.  It would be a fitting replacement for a book like The Giving Tree or The Best Nest.
