Review: You are Special by Max Lucado

Synopsis: Every day the small wooden people called Wemmicks do the same thing: stick either gold stars or gray dots on one another. The pretty ones--those with smooth wood and fine paint--always get stars. The talented ones do, too. Others, though, who can do little or who have chipped paint, get ugly gray dots. Like Punchinello. In this heartwarming children's tale from the best-selling pen of author Max Lucado, Eli the woodcarver helps Punchinello understand how special he is--no matter what other Wemmicks may think. It's a vital message for children everywhere: that regardless of how the world evaluates them, God cherishes each of them, just as they are. (from the online description)

Review: Despite being a bit on the sappy side, this is a good book with a good message. Only God can define our worth, no matter what the world tells us. Although sold as a children's book, the message is most certainly for all of us. A worthy read.
