I think 99.9% of this world has read a Max Lucado book at some point.

But I have a confession: I actually like his children’s books more than his ones meant for adults!

I recently found a new one to love…

The Oak Inside the Acorn by Max Lucado is a beautiful parable taken from his book Cure for the Common Life and made into a touching picture book for children ages five to ten.

I sat down to read this with Big J while Little J was napping and I wish I would have grabbed a box of Kleenex! The book reminded me of The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, but with a Christian perspective and deeper meaning.

The story follows a little acorn as it leaves it’s mother oak tree and find its place and purpose in the world – its God-given purpose. The book encourages children to be the best they can be for God and not try to be anyone else!

We both enjoyed the story and gorgeous illustrations so much, and I was an emotional mama by the end!
