Once again, traditions are causing havoc in Wemmicksville, and Punchinello is in the middle. But in the end he learns that what you have is not nearly as important as Whose you are. The sequel to the phenomenal bestseller You Are Special!
Bigger allowances. Better clothes. More toys.
Bigger, better, more is how the world determines who's special and who's not. It's a message your kids are hearing every day. But it's not God's message.
His truth is simple and never-changing: It's not what you have, it's Whose you are. And it's a truth that the lovable Wemmick, Punchinello, hears again at the knee of his creator in this faithful, fully illustrated sequel to You Are Special.
Punchinello's lesson in love will help you speak God's heart to the heart of every child: You are special, not because of the things you have, but because you are Mine.
