Review: Seedlings;Fables From The Forest by:C. D. Baker

Seedlings; Fables from the Forest
About the Book:
Fun fables from the forest for readers 4 - 8. Author C.D. Baker invites children to discover five virtues of a happy life through stories told by trees. The power of gratitude, humility, selflessness, kindness, and forgiveness are revealed in memorable tales that children are sure to love...and to remember.

About the Author:
C.D. Baker's first novel, 'A Journey of Souls,' was released in 2000 and re-released in 2004 as 'Crusade of Tears'-- a Christee Award nominee. He has written seven historical novels, two books of spiritual reflections, and one children's book published variously in the U.S., the U.K., Ukraine, and Germany. He has a Master's degree in Theology from the University of St. Andrews, Scotland. Baker's specialty is the discovery of the untold story.

Baker writes from his small farm in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where he raises livestock with an interest in natural/organic methods and a passion for humane treatment. 

My Review:
 Who knew that seedlings could learn so much from trees? The older and wiser trees seem to have all the answers to life's lessons. But what if the seedlings are surrounded by more seedlings? Then the outcome will be slightly different because they will have to face bullying. And as a result they will become selfish and in turn will not be able or willing to share the things that made them wise.

 Seedlings, is a wonderful story filled with amazing stories that can be told generation after generation---timeless. Five stories that will encourage children to be thankful, humble, kind, helpful, and forgiving. Recommended for ages 4-8, children everywhere can learn honorable life lessons, in this inspiring children's book.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
