Another book....

Friday has arrived!  Has it seemed like a long week to you?  Do you have some good week-end plans?

For a few Sundays, I have featured quotes from a book written by Max Lucado.  My first introduction to him was with this book.

Illustrated by Sergio Martinez.

The book tells about a woodworker named Eli who carved small wooden people called Wemmicks.  They were each different, just as we are all different. 

The Wemmicks spent their days giving out stars and dots.

Eli is hard at work.

Punchinello understands now that we cannot all be alike.

I think this is a wonderful book to read to children to reinforce their value as an individual, helping them to see how special they are even though they are not like anyone else!  Great for self-esteem, in my opinion. 

This has been a favorite book for a gift to families welcoming that first child!

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.

  7. At our church, the priest pays special to children and read that story one day to the kids and the whole congregation. It was a great way to put his point across in a way that kids would understand. A great book indeed.
    I highly recommend it.
    Thanks for always sharing books that are special.
    Have a lovely weekend Nellie.
