Baby Wren and the Great Gift

Grand Rapids, MI--- April 5, 2016--- 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.
Baby Wren and the Great Gift, written by bestselling author Sally Lloyd-Jones 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 thoughts: BABY WREN AND THE GREAT GIFT is a really cute children's book
 about finding your own special gift. Baby Wren can't swim or fly high with the eagles,
 but her special gift is amazing when she finds it.  My daughter enjoyed reading it.
  A book celebrating spring and individuality. Not Christian, so sure to appeal to
 anyone. A good gift your favorite child.  4 stars. 
Baby Wren and the Great Gift is available with hardcover for $16.99 on April 5,
2016 at retailers nationwide and online.
