Children's Book Review

Today I am reviewing the children's book " The Tallest of the smalls" written by Max Lucado and illustrated by Maria Monescillo. This is a parable from from his book Fearless(not a children's book).This is a story about a boy named Ollie who lived in the town of Stiltsville ,who wanted to be loved and feel he was special .Each evening at six , they handed out stilts. Which everyone wanted, to be in the "in crowd". Ollie was short and had patches on his pants . He really wanted to be given those stilts so he could fit in and feel good about himself. Finally one day his name was called and he got his chance at wearing the stilts . But, things did not turn out well for him and he fell off. Then,someone came and helped him , a person who loved him unconditionally . I think you can guess who that was. Jesus, the only one who really validates our worth.
I love this book and it's wonderful message for kids in this world where they are given so many messages about how to fit in and be accepted . Unconditional love is what they seek and that is how our Lord loves us. I read it to my grand kids and they loved it ;I recommend it.

Below is a video of Max Lucado telling about the book,

  3. This story is for us big girls too. It's been a very hard week for me, and I needed this gentle reminder that when we feel short and sometimes people run over us like a train, there's one who saves us, and one who loves us. Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving from my heart to yours.
