You Are Special Hardback

Illustrated by Sergio Martinez

Part of the Wemmicks series

3.5 out of 5 (3 ratings)


Every day the small wooden people called Wemmicks do the same thing: stick gold stars or grey dots on one another.

In this children's tale, 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 they are all special in God's eyes.

To illustrate the verse, "You are fearfully and wonderfully made," a wonderful story of a puppet who finds his worth when he finds his maker.

Scary ... I realize my daughter doesn't like wooden dolls such as Pinocchio or any look-alike ....

Review by

I would never have picked up this book on my own, what with the unfortunate title, but I'm ever so grateful that I found it on my Unitarian Universalist minister's bookshelf. If I were Christian, this would be a 5-star book, so I recommend it to monotheists. This is basically a Sneetches with a Christian spin that had both me and my son sitting in silent contemplation and wonder, flippng through the pages and thinking more deeply about that "mystery which some people call God." It then prompted a meaningful discussion about popularity, poverty, and conformity. Definitely a thought-provoking read with a title that is sure to keep it unpopular for years to come.
