Item description for The Oak Inside the Acorn by Max Lucado & Nathan Larkin...

In his touching picture book, master storyteller Max Lucado reveals that each one of us was created for a special purpose. The Oak Inside the Acorn is a heartwarming parable that encourages children to be the best they can be for God. This parallel to the bestselling book for adults, Cure for the Common Life, reminds parents to focus on their children's God-given abilities, while Children will see that all they need to do is to "Just be the tree God made you to be."
Little Acorn sees himself as very small and he's unsure of what he's supposed to do in life. Eventually, he grows into Big Oak, but he still wonders about his purpose. Though he tries as hard as he can, he can't grow oranges like his friends the orange trees, or produce beautiful flowers like his friends Pink Petunia or Rosie. But finally, he discovers that his mighty branches were created for a very special purpose! Recommended for ages 5 to 10.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Oak Inside the Acorn?

Precious story that grows with you  Sep 14, 2008
I purchased this book for my granddaughter for holiday time. I thought the story would interest her now at age three and still hold lessons as she grows. The pictures and text are precious and done in the usual Lucado manner; clear, written with love and undertanding.
Another insightful Max Lucado book  Aug 24, 2008
Good reminder to parents of how quickly our children grow up. Excellent gift for milestones such as a 1st b'day or Kindergarten graduation.
The Virtue of the Small: Potential  Mar 21, 2008
The Oak Inside the Acorn is a definite must read for anyone (ages 4-440) who needs some encouragement to follow his / her own inner nature, embracing the potential within, becoming what he / she is truly meant to be. In today's, fast-paced, media driven world, it is hard for human beings to identify and to appreciate themselves. This story speaks to those confusions and personal questions. It's the story of growing up. It's the story of courage, patience, and acceptance. Like "The Giving Tree," this book depicts the rhythms of the world...the cycles of life and the subtle, enduring connections among living things.

Lucado celebrates the virtue of small things: small things have BIG potential. I loved the line in the story spoken by the Mother Tree: "Within you is a great oak. Just be the tree God made you to be." How many people suffer because they try to hard to be something that they were not designed to be just like the Little Acorn? The message is very powerful--striking deep into the soul.

The book is beautifully illustrated. My favorite panels are the ones that depict the passage of time. Readers can feel like they are moving through the lives of the characters within. This book is well worth the purchase price, and it is a wonderful edition to any library. The story lends itself to a great discussion with young people--Sunday school classes, youth groups, home-schoolers, etc.
Wonderful Book!  Nov 9, 2007
I bought this book for one of my nieces and it is perfect for her! The first time I read it, it brought me to tears because the message is so beautiful. I would recommend it for anyone!
The Oak Inside The Acorn by Max Lucado  Apr 18, 2007
Letting go of your childhood is hard to do, and a bit scary. In The Oak Inside the Acorn, nature forces Little Acorn to let go of his mother's nurturing branches and begin a life of his own. Little Acorn is not sure what he is suppose to be. He can't bare fruit like the orange trees and he has no beautiful blooms or sweet scents like the flowers. A farmer plants him in the family's back yard, and there he grows bigger and taller every year, right along with a little girl. When the little girl grows into a young lady, Big Oak uses one of his own little acorns to teach her to be what God wants her to be.

What I Liked: I like the lesson, to be what God intended us to be.

What I Disliked: I was a little disappointed with this book. This author is one of my favorites, but the message in this book was simply not as strong as I had anticipated. The message was clear, it just didn't reach out and grab me like most of his other books do.

Age Appeal: 4-8

Overall Rating: Very Good.
