The Tallest of Smalls by Max Lucado is a parable taken from his book Fearless. It was probably my favorite section in the book Fearless. The Tallest of Smalls is the story of a village where those who are hip and cool walk around town on stilts. They look down their noses at those whom they consider not cool or hip. One day Ollie is picked and given a pair of sticks. When he falls he finds out that those with whom he was walking tall no longer considered him cool after all. But Jesus camae along and helped him up. He let Ollie know that he is important to him. The illustrations in this book were done by Maria Monescillo. I loved them. I loved the story told in rhyme. Most important to me was the message in the story. It is simple enough that a very young child can figure it out. I can't wait to share this with my grandchildren. I know that they will love it as much as I do. I hope to make it a tradition to share this book every time they come over.
