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.
