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:
I Spy with my Little Eye
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.
