Review of "Baby Wren and the Great Gift" by Sally Lloyd-Jones

It's a lovely story with a lot of good repetition that is always great for reading aloud with children. This book really focusses on how we need not be jealous or envious of others because we all have our own gifts that God has given us.  When we use our gifts and talents to the best of our ability we will shine and fulfill a purpose only for us and fill a space in this earth that would be empty otherwise.

The story follows the little wren who is amazed by the talents of other creatures that she watches. She wonders why she can't do that too.  Then at the end she finds what she can do and that is sing. Her voice fills the whole canyon and now its the other creatures amazed at her.

While it's a simple message it's an important one for children as it's easy to get caught up in what others can do, especially when not sure of what we can do ourselves yet.  This book is a reminder to wait and you'll find it soon enough.

I like this book.
