Book Nook: Baby Wren and the Great Gift

To know your gift and calling in life is a true blessing. For most, finding that gift is a journey of personal discovery that often begins in the tender childhood years. Bestselling author Sally Lloyd-Jones, with help from illustrator Jen Corace, encourages little ones to understand that they each have a special and unique gift in life that God has given them, in the delightful picture book Baby Wren and the Great Gift

I had a chance to review the book, which is an adorable tale of a tiny wren who wishes she could do the amazing things that the creatures around her can do. It's a great book for young children, encouraging them not to compare themselves to others, but to see where they can shine and use their own talents.
