Book Review: Baby Come Home
About the Book:
“Baby Come Home” is a story of the young bird, “Baby”, who learns the value of unconditional love and acceptance after he decides to break free from the confinement of his cage and those who love him most. The story gives children a different perspective on rules and why we need to obey them while also offering a teaching on the unconditional love our perfect God has for His imperfect people.
This story book has more than one message between its pages and even though it is labelled as a Christian Children's Picture Book, I believe any faith or non-faith family will enjoy it. From learning about friendship, trust and love, Baby takes young children on an adventure while learning about rules and how those around you only want to keep you safe. There are many opportunities for parents, teachers or caregivers to talk with children as they read together about what is happening in the story as well.
The author shared with us that the bird and storyline is based loosely off a family story. The main character Baby is actually based of a pet bird they owned and had fly away.
We feel this is a great read for the whole family and book all ages can enjoy.
