received yellow stars 
yellow stars who were not would get gray dots There was only one Wemmick who never got any stars His name was Punchinello He was sad that no one gave him stars and he thought that because of his gray dots he was worthless Until one day he meets a Wemmick called Lucia and she has no stars or dots She tells Punchinello that if he goes to see Eli very day like she does nothing will stick to him When he makes his first visit to Eli Eli tells Punchinello that he is special to him Having Eli feel that he is special makes Punchinello forget about what the other Wemmicks think of him and one of his dots falls offTo me Eli represents the people w Now I will admit that when I saw little wooden puppets on the cover of this book saw little wooden puppets on the cover of this book was truly intrigued since I njoy reading books that deal with puppets in general whether the puppets are cute or horrifying You Are Special is a truly uniue children s book written by Max Lucado along with illustrations by Sergio Martinez that many children and adults will njoy for the heartwarming message about being yourselfOnce upon a time there was a little village where wooden people called the Wemmicks lived at and they were all created by a wood worker named Eli One of the main activities that the Wemmicks participated in was putting on golden stars and gray dots on ach other The gold stars would represent how much talent that person would have such as having smooth wood and fine paint on their bodies and being able to do spectacular tricks such as knowing big words and jumping over tall boxes The gray dots would represent the less attractive side of ach person such as if their wood and paint is not pretty or if they cannot do any kind of spectacular stunts then they are awarded a gray dot One unfortunate wooden person named Punchinello was the one who was always getting gray dots due to him not being able to do any fantastic stunts and not having smooth wood and fine paint on himself Punchinello was so upset about all this that he decided not to go out into the village for fear of being given a gray dot for no reason at all One day however Punchinello meets a wooden girl named Lucia who does not have any stars or dots on herself and when Punchinello wanted to know about why Lucia does not have any dots or stars on her Lucia tells him that he should go see Eli What will Eli tell PunchinelloRead this book to find out Now when I saw the 10th Anniversary golden badge on this book I was wondering to myself about how come this book has such a badge on the cover as books that usually have an anniversary badge on their cover would have to be pretty well known in the reading community As it turns out this book was pretty popular back in the late 1990s it is just that I have not read this book until just recently and I honestly did njoy the cute message of this book Max Lucado s writing is truly heartwarming and creative and I loved the fact that the main characters were little wooden people who all resemble the puppet characters from Pinocchio heck the main character Punchinello is similar to Pinocchio since I always loved stories that involved puppets I felt that having the main characters as wooden people really gave the book a creative flair that really made this book stand out from the other children s books I had read I also loved the way that Max Lucado presented the message of being happy with who you are no matter what other people say as Punchinello is mistreated by the other Wemmicks because of the fact that he keeps getting so many gray dots on his body It was interesting seeing the parallels of prejudice in this book as the Wemmicks judge others by the amount of stars and dots they have on their bodies and it s similar to how people in real life judge. 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 He creates All Roads Lead Home each Wemmick in Wemmicksville uniuelyach with its own look and personality Each st. A person based on their accomplishments rather than who they truly are Sergio Martinez s artworks is truly beautiful to look at as the Wemmick population looks xtremely creative since they are drawn as wooden people and yet they act like and move like human beings I also loved how gorgeous the landscape looks as the Wemmick village truly stands out in this book as it looks like an old fashioned village from the Renaissance ra and yet it is uniue due to the wooden people occupying the villageThe reason why I gave this book a four star rating was because ven though I loved the message of this book I felt that the book was a bit too slow in some parts and that sort of slowed down the story for meOverall You Are Special is a great book for children who want to learn about the importance of being yourself and to remember that there are people that care about you no matter what anyone lse thinks I would recommend this book to children ages five and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this bookReview is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog I just read this 4 times for my 1 Year Old Nephew So old nephew so t judge me for using this towards my reading challenge This is on the coffee table in my therapy office In my work with children I freuently have parents read to their children books that will The Mephisto Threat (Paul Tallis enhance selfsteem This is one that does it through a spiritual message mphasizing that we are special because of how our Maker sees us rather than because of self generated steem or the steem of others In fact it suggests that greater self steem comes when we let neither the criticisms nor the compliments of others stick and instead look to our creator for our perspective on our worth In my personal philosophy I deemphasize the notion of self Just Cause esteem and instead prefer what I call Christsteem having a sense of self worth that is based on how the Savior sees us I appreciate Lucado s story for teaching this message The first time I read this book I cried I was 26 years old and found this children s book on the shelf at my friend s house I opened it and read it and found myself within the pages of the bookYou Are Special is the story of wooden people called the Wemmicks Everyday the Wemmicks would give shiny stars to the Wemmicks that did amazing things and gave black dots to Wemimicks that did things wrongOne particular Wemmick Punchinello kept getting dots put on him as he was a little clumsy One day Punchinello met a Wemmick who had no stars or dots on her and he becomes friends with her She takes Punchinello to the woodcarver who tells him how special he is and is not determined on the stars and dots or how he performs or fails This story made me realise how much weight I put on other people s opinions of me I constantly performed for the stars and felt so down when someone gave me a dot I think most of us do Sometimes I still find myself performing for the stars and trying to avoid the dots This book showed me that other people s opinions do not determine how special I am what God thinks of me does And He thinks I m so special just the way I am I love reading this book to my boys This is a story about the Wemmicks who are small wooden people carved by a woodworker named Eli Every Wemmick is different some have big noses others have large yes some are tall others are short some wear hats others wear coats But all Wemmicks are made by the same carver and all live in the same villageAnd while in that village the Wemmicks wander around and stick stars or dots on one another The stars are stuck on the Wemmicks with smooth wood and fine paint the dots are stuck on those where the wood is rough or the paint is chipped Stars are also awarded to the talented Wemmicks while those less talented are awarded dotsPunchinello is unfortunate that he is one of the less talented Wemmicks and things he does often go wrong so he constantly has dots stuck on him He s not a good wooden person the others would say and it nds up with him thinking of himself I Ory and video is a new adventure with the citizens of Wemmicksville Punchinello is the central character along with his friends Lucia Splint and Chip When Punchinello strays from Eli he begins to have problems Only when Punchinello stays close to Eli does he clearly see
