If you read my blog or follow me on social media, you know how much I love Sally Lloyd-Jones' Jesus Storybook Bible! Its so beautifully written! Her book, "Thoughts To Make Your Heart Sing," is another favorite. So I'm always excited when I see she's publishing a new book! And she's got a new book out that's PERFECT for Spring - "Baby Wren And The Great Gift"!
This book officially releases on April 5, 2016, but the AWESOME folks at Zondervan were kind enough to send me a copy for review! Let me start by saying how much I LOVE the cover! Its so beautifully illustrated. So inviting and full of the beauty of Spring! The story is about a baby wren who sees all sorts of other animals that can fly higher, climb, or swim - all things that she can't do. She's saddened by her "shortcoming" until she finally realizes what God made her to do.
I read this book with my daughters today and they enjoyed it. The illustrations kept them engaged, and the story was simple and easy to understand. Best of all, it precipitated a discussion with my five year old on what her special, God-given talents are. I was able to point out some of her natural abilities. The only bummer is that the book won't be available for Easter. It would make a lovely addition to any Easter basket.
I received this book, free of charge, from Zondervan, in exchange for my honest review.
