Patience is a children’s picture book and is the fourth in The Invisible Tree series by Kirrily Lowe. The series is based on the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) and has the theme: “There is an invisible tree that lives inside of me. It wants to grow big and tall even though I am very small.”

In this book, Sam has received a letter from his Nanna who is on holidays in Egypt. She tells him she has sent a parcel “full of lots of surprises” but now Sam has to be patient and wait for the parcel to arrive. Through the story Sam learns the value of patience.

It has a gentle rhyming style, like the others and doesn’t actually mention God though on the back page lists the fruit of the Spirit.

Henry Smith has again done a great job of designing pictures and fonts to fit the message and style of the book.

A lovely read.
