I love this story. First heard it in one of my Beehive young women lessons. I wanted it for my children. Couldn't quite decide what the difference was between this one and the bigger one, so I was on a budget and got this one. The difference is it doesn't tell the whole story. The message is still there, and it's still good, but not as long. It stops after the first visit.
My daughter (age 4) and I love this book!!! The main character learns that he is special no matter what others think, and that he has a creator that loves him very much (and made him the exactly the way he is on purpose). This book helps remind us of our Heavenly Father's unique love for us. I would definitely recommend it!
This book is not only my children's favorite - it is mine! It is a great way to teach children of all ages how much Heavenly Father loves them and also how special they are.
This book is spectacular and really helps the reader realize how important they are to our Heavenly Father.
This is one of my children's favorite books.
I bought this for my children and found I was using its precepts in my own life and to teach others. It is a wonderful analogy of life here on earth, how we are all wooden heads passing judgements on others as well as ourselves, how that affects others. One Punchinello is caught up in worrying about what others are thinking and being drug down by it...until he meets one girl named Lucia, who has GOT IT RIGHT! Everyone loves Lucia. He wonders why other peoples' judgements don't stick to her. She tells him to go see 'The Maker' and he will see! Punchinello's life is changed in wonderful ways as he has an interview with Eli. It is a precept everyone must believe if they want to soar in this life.
This book is remarkable. The story is profound and the truths in it are as much for adults as children. The artwork is gorgeous. I would recommend this for every family.
