Crusty the Orange is a rhyming children's picture book. This heart-warming popular short-story about finding your purpose and belonging aims to help children feel comfortable in their own skin. Crusty the Orange is perfect for 3-7-year-olds, but suitable for all ages (including adults!). A truly wonderful read with magical illustrations.
Crusty the Orange follows the story of a dried-up, sad, very crusty orange on a beautiful tree. Surrounded by 'perfect' oranges who know where they are heading in life, Crusty feels useless and believes he has no purpose. The wise old Marie the Tree does not know the answer, but she does know she needs to send him on an adventure of a lifetime to find out for himself.
Join Crusty as he discovers that even a difficult dilemma can lead him to his purpose and that meeting a like-minded friend along the way makes any hard journey so much better. Crusty reminds us that we all have a very important job to do, no matter how big or small. I wonder what Crusty's special job will be?
