The Littlest Acorn by Lisa Lentino Book Review
We recently got the chance to read the book The Littlest Acorn. This is such a cute story with a wonderful message of self worth and acceptance. My boys and I really enjoyed this book and we find ourselves reading it at least a couple times a week. The illustrations are beautiful, and the story is very well written. This book would make a great gift for any child.
The Littlest Acorn is more than a children’s book; it is a work that entertains, educates and inspires readers. Based on author/psychologist Lisa Lentino’s philosophy, it demonstrates how to grow beyond early childhood programming and live the authentic life one is meant to live. Her engaging book teaches early grade school children to appreciate their natural gifts, especially at critical stages of socialization. It can be used by parents, teachers, librarians and others to inspire children to search within themselves in order to determine their worth and value.
The littlest acorn wants to grow big and strong. As a sapling, she notices tall pines and colorful maples nearby. In comparing herself to them, her self-esteem withers, and she loses her zest for life. It takes a little bird building a nest to show the little oak tree the true value of her shape, color, size and spirit.
This engaging book teaches early grade school children to appreciate their natural gifts, especially at critical stages of socialization. It can be used by parents, teachers, librarians and anyone else who wants to inspire children to overcome the urge to compare themselves to others in order to determine their worth and value.
Ultimately, it shows children the path to true contentment – discovering their unique gifts (what’s in their acorn), developing them and then sharing them with the world.
