All sorts of wonderful things happen when an acorn turns into an oak tree. As the acorn opens and takes root in the soil, a new tree starts to grow. As the tree stretches higher into the sky, blue jays and red cardinals make the branches their home. And soon, new acorns fall to the ground and plant new trees. As parents read this special story, children can turn the pages and watch the tree grow taller, inviting children to learn about God's role as creator and sustainer of all life . . . including theirs.
