Pine and the Winter Sparrow Children’s Book Giveaway
Sponsor: Wisdom Tales
Host: Parenting Healthy
If you have never visited the Wisdom Tales website and are looking for children’s books that focus on lessons and folktales, you may find books that you actually enjoy reading with your child. As much as I love my son’s enthusiasm over some popular kids books, what I love better is books that teach a lesson. It is hard to have a meaningful conversation after reading a book about a fictional superhero in underpants, but we can talk for quite a bit about why a tree who gave a lot when it had little will be rewarded for life. Reading in my home is more than just a checkmark next to his homework sheet telling us to read 20 minutes a night, it has been a ritual since he was an infant.
Pine and the Winter Sparrow retells the popular folktale about why Pine trees stay green and keep their color year round while other trees loose their leaves and color in the fall and winter months. Now I know the scientific reason why trees loose leaves, but I can take this story and show my son that perhaps there are other reasons. Perhaps people (or trees) get their benefits for more reasons than one. I read this story about an injured Sparrow who was seeking winter shelter from a forest of trees with my son. At 6, he took the end of the book to ask who keeps watch more, Jesus or God. This book mentions the word Creator and my son would refer to Creator in this story as God. He recognized that when we do good for others, rewards are more than just monetary, but favors may come to us in ways we never knew. It leaves him feeling even if we are not watching him, his actions are noticed. I was impressed he was able to grasp that a bit with this story.
