I bought 4 of the paperbacks to use as gifts since I remember reading this wonderful story to my kids. The paperback is way too small - 4.75" wide by 6.25" tall. I could live with the size but the delightful illustrations are all black & white. (Or I should say brown and cream.) If I'd seen either of those two details in the description, I wouldn't have gotten the paperback. Didn't think to check reviews - which I'm usually a NUT about - because I thought I knew what I was getting. These gifts are headed back to Amazon.
It is particularly helpful for kids, teens, and adults. Ooops, I guess that is everyone. But I especially keep an extra copy on hand for those I meet who are struggling in the area of self-esteem because of family issues like alcoholism. Too often we forget that God made each of us unique, and that it is God's approval, not the approval of others that we need to seek.
While I love all of the Wemmick books, my other favorite is Because I Love You which discusses our personal freedom to walk away from God.
Excellent resources, even better than the adult stuff (which is very good) that Max writes.
This is a well-written story teaching children and adults about how their personal worth is NOT derived from whether someone else likes or dislikes you or whether you excel or fail at sports and other activities. It outlines a little wooden doll's experience becoming depressed over the way others look down on him and how he meets his Maker and realizes that his value is rather based upon the fact that his Maker made him to be just who he is. It is an excellent story to read to your children. It is also used by psychologists and counselors to help adults with self-esteem issues.
The book is beautifully illustrated.
I hope this review will help you in your decision to purchase this book. You will be glad that you did!
