Description

Every person is tasked with learning why they were created and the unique gifts that make them special. Written by New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado, The Oak Inside the Acorn teaches young readers about the incredible miracle inside each of us while reminding us that we were created by God for a special purpose.

The story highlights the adventure of a sweet little acorn becoming a big, strong oak tree. Readers will cheer on the growing tree when he can't grow oranges like the orange tree or flowers like the rose bush. Children will read with patient wonder as the tree grows empty branches, and later a very special purpose is revealed.

The Oak Inside the Acorn is a wonderful book for readers, ages 6-10. Children will learn that:

  • All of God's creations have purpose and contribute to the well-being of others
  • Patience is a process, and it takes time to grow into all God created them to be

This inspirational story makes an excellent bedtime story and will help children in your life understand all they were created to be.



Author Information

Max Lucado
Max Lucado has the heart of a pastor and the pen of a poet. He is a preacher who writes and a writer who preaches, though none would call him preachy. This unique combination of gifts led Christianity Today to label him "America's Pastor," but he prefers to go by "Max" and leave the titles behind.

Since 1985 this Texas pastor has taken pen to paper, sharing his heart and his stories with readers around the globe. And readers have responded, snapping up more than 50 million copies of his 60 plus titles during the last two decades.

Every year, Max's books are consistently among the best selling and most well-reviewed books in the industry. He is the first and only author to win the ECPA Christian Book of the Year award three times (1999 for Just Like Jesus, 1997 for In the Grip of Grace and 1995 for When God Whispers Your Name). And his name has become a fixture on national bestseller lists-a Max Lucado title has appeared on the CBA hardcover bestseller list every month for more than a dozen years. Also in 2008, Max Lucado's 3:16 The Numbers of Hope was awarded Outreach Magazine's Resource of the Year as well as the Retailer's Choice Book of the Year in the Christian Living category. His works regularly appear on the Publishers Weekly religion bestseller lists and have graced the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists more than once.

Max Lucado is one of the rare authors who can craft memorable books for readers of all ages, races and creeds. He has written bestselling books for both children and adults, from illustrated storybooks to nonfiction and biblical commentary. Though he is known best for his nonfiction books for adults, Max won Campus Life magazine's "favorite author" designation so consistently that the category was deleted for many years from the teen reader's annual awards.

Max's gift of turning a phrase has turned into one of Hallmark's most popular branded greeting cards lines, selling 6 million cards in just three years. His word and stories have been repackaged in just about every format imaginable, including DVDs, CD-ROMs, music CDs, apparel, giftware, calendars, study Bibles and even plush products. And his books have been translated into more than 28 languages worldwide.

Yet all these books and products find their wellspring in a single source: the pulpit at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas. All Max's books for adults have been birthed as sermons for the congregation at Oak Hills Church-perhaps one of the reasons Readers Digest dubbed him "America's Best Preacher" in 2005.
