Baby Come Home is a story of the young bird, “Baby,” who learns the value of unconditional love and acceptance. It isn’t until after he decides to listen to others (peer pressure) and break frees from the confinement of his cage that Baby realizes life isn’t always greener on the other side. He quickly learns those who love him most will always welcome him home with open arms if he just asks. The story gives children a different perspective on rules and why parents, teachers, etc., are there to guide them. Children learn there is a reason why we need to obey them. We also learn that God has an unconditional love for His imperfect people.
There are many important life and Bible lessons in this story. It’s a touching story to add to your faith-inspired collection. Children learn it might seem better for someone else, but sometimes what they see isn’t really the full truth of the reality. Any faith or non-faith family will enjoy the life lessons hidden within the pages, such as kindness, love, trust, understanding, and forgiveness. The storyline opens doors for parents, teachers, or church leaders to have open conversations with children. In the author’s notes, you will find three or four Bible verses for those who want to use the book as a teaching tool in their church or family gatherings.
This is a wonderful story to share with young readers or any reader for that matter.
