The Lovereading4Kids comment

Brilliantly simple, how one acorn saves itself by telling the animals that it will become something bigger and better if they leave it is a treat of a book. Time passes and the acorn lives up to its promise by delivering acorns for all in a wonderful, surprise open the flap spread.

This is one of the launch titles of a new imprint from Templar - they're all absolutely gorgeous:

Little Bee

The Acorn

I Spy with my Little Eye

Synopsis

The Acorn by Edward Gibbs

This gentle tale follows the story of a little acorn who manages to convince the woodland animals not to eat him. The animals are later rewarded for their patience when the little acorn grows and flourishes into a glorious big oak tree who can provide food for the whole forest. A delightful story that also conveys underlying concepts about food chains and sustainable consumption.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
