What's You Are Special About

Publisher Summary

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 best-selling 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.

This tale originally appeared within one of the chapters in the award-winning children’s bestseller Tell Me the Secrets.

This tender story shares powerful messages about faith and trusting in God and what He thinks of us more than what others may. It’s a reminder that we should not be so quick to judge one another or to withhold love and praise for one another, no matter our unique talents or abilities. The messages of the book can be appreciated by kids and adults alike.
