You Are Special A Story For Everyone (Wemmicks)
Max was interested in helping children understand their value-not from the world's perspective, but from God's. Wemmicksville is a land created by Eli, the "God" figure of the story.

Kid's books are so much fun. :)
This is the first Max Lucado book I've read. I picked it up in elementary school and since then, it's been LUCADO ALL THE WAY! And what not.
I like how Max Lucado's picture books have meaning. You don't just get this little book that goes "Pig wakes up. Pig brushes teeth (bad grammar, ugh). Pig dresses up. Pig is happy." or something lame like that. You have this little book full of meaning. Precious lessons to teach an ...more
People gave dots to Panchinello, to show how ugly and untalented he was. Those dots might look like small things, but other people talked about it, looking down on him. Those words and dots nailed on his heart, making holes.
