One of my high school teachers gave this to me when she was leaving to go to another high school. I was the girl who always was quiet so I had a teacher or two tell me that I wasn't going to get very far. But there were a few in the 11th and 12th grade who convinced me that I was more than my shyness. This book reminds me of that time and how far I've gotten since then from only saying 1 word a year to not being afraid of strangers. It always convinces me again that I am special. And on a plus n [...]

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 book.You 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 wrong.One particular Wemmick, Punchinello kept getting dots put on him, as he was a little clumsy. One [...]

This is on the coffee table in my therapy office. In my work with children, I frequently have parents read to their children books that will enhance self-esteem. This is one that does it through a spiritual message, emphasizing that we are special because of how our Maker sees us, rather than because of self-generated esteem or the esteem of others. In fact, it suggests that greater self-esteem comes when we let neither the criticisms nor the compliments of others stick, and instead look to our [...]

This book still makes me cry, even though I have read it a million times. Whenever I feel alone or distant from God or unworthy to be called his child, this is the book I turn to. I don't know how many copies of this book I have given away as presents, none to children.

You are special tells the story of Eli, the woodcarver, and the society of wooden people he creates called, Wemmicks. Wemmicks spend their days placing stickers on one another as a way of expressing their feelings: those who were appreciated received yellow "stars", those 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 [...]

Now, I will admit that when I saw little wooden puppets on the cover of this book, I was truly intrigued, since I enjoy reading books that deal with puppets in general (whether the puppets are cute or horrifying). “You Are Special” is a truly unique children’s book written by Max Lucado along with illustrations by Sergio Martinez that many children and adults will enjoy for the heartwarming message about being yourself.Once upon a time, there was a little village where wooden people called [...]

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 eyes, 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 village.And 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 [...]

Max Lucado's story 'You are Special' is a written as a children's book but it is one of those books which isn't only appealing to children. The message of the story can speak to both adults and children alike and is definitely one of my favourites.The Wemmicks are small wooden people who every day give each other stickers. The good looking or talented Wemmicks receive gold stars while those whose wood is rough or chipped or who can't do much get grey dots. Punchinello always tried to get gold st [...]

"You Are Special" continues to be one of my favorite books. The main idea of the story is to show children that they are wonderful, special individuals regardless of how the world evaluates them; which relates to the idea of everybody being different. The main character, Punchinello, is not as pretty, smart, or talented as the others in his community, yet in the end he discovers that what others think does not matter. In this Religion genre text Eli, the woodcarver, represents the creator of man [...]

A quick, charmingly allegorical read with an invaluable message. The author gave young readers a good deal of reasoning credit. While there are clearly Christian principles being expressed, it isn't heavy-handed or over explained. The gist being that what others think of us--good or bad--doesn't matter unless we ALLOW it to matter to us. I liked the softly lit, watercolor and pastel feel to the illustrations. My children were a little off-put by the exaggerated proportions of the Wemmicks, findi [...]

This is a beautifully designed and illustrated spiritual book for toddlers and children. It is also very well written, and it is enjoyable to read in its own right. It carries a very simple message – we are all God’s creatures, and he loves us despite (or sometimes even because) of our many flaws and defects. The labels and categories that we put each other in are irrelevant. What really matters is how God views us and what He thinks of us. All we need to do is accept God’s love and spend [...]

Another book my mom gave me when I was having one of 'those' days. I never felt special growing up, much like Punchinello. I probably would have had lots of gray dots and no gold stars either! While the book was written for children to understand that God loves them no matter what, I was given the book when I was probably about 15 or 16. The message was still loud and clear - but I didn't see Eli as God to me, he was my parents. This is another one of those books that I still have on the shelf i [...]

Everyday Wemmicks go around sticking stickers on the other Wemmicks. If you are smart, pretty, or talented, they will place a star on your wooden frame. But if you are not star-worthy then they will place a grey dot instead. Punchinello is one such Wemmick, no matter how hard he tries, he just keeps getting more and more gray dots. It takes a chance meeting with a Wemmick that has no stickers whatsoever that finally sets Punchinello in the right direction.This was a lovely story that perfectly i [...]

Es una historia hermosa. Lloré la primera vez que la escuché, porque en ese momento necesitaba oír lo que El Artesano le dijo a Punchinello. "Tú eres especial" es una verdad que siempre debe estar presente en nuestra mente. En cuanto a la narración, considero que se pudo haber profundizado más en la historia, aunque puede que esta sea mi visión de adulta y que para un niño sea suficiente lo que se encuentra en el grupo. Pero también puede que mi visión haya sido afectada porque vi la a [...]

The perfect book to read to a student who feels as though they are not good enough to fit in or are different from those around them. The moral of this story is that you don't have to be like everyone else. Each person has their own way of being special and the opinions of others do not define you. I am in love with this book. I feel like many children feel unwanted and they desire for someone to tell them they are cared about and are special. In our cruel world, it is too often that people are [...]

This is a fantastic book that teaches everyone that reads it, regardless of their age, that it is more important to love yourself than to care what other people think of you. There will always be people judging you and telling you that you aren't good enough. But this book has a beautiful message that you were created to be unique and you are not a mistake. I love this book because it is a god reminder that I am in charge of how I will live my life. Little Punchinello is someone I think we can a [...]

Excellent children's book. I wish adults would read this one too and remember the message - how candid God's love is toward us. On our personal journey, we are often labeled and framed according to our performance which is measured by human standards. God does not see us in labels, frames, or colors, and does not love us according to our performance. He made us, He did not make a mistake, and loves us as we are because we belong to Him. Once these words become revelation in us, everything change [...]

Age recommended: age 4 and up This is one of those gems that I loved so much I couldn't wait to read it to my child, but I also wanted to wait till she would really appreciate and comprehend it. Now she's four and a half and really enjoys it. It's one of those classics that you just have to own, and you don't get tired of reading, because it becomes more meaningful as you get older. Every time I read it it reminds me of who I am as a child of God. As my children get older, I'm excited to see wha [...]

I love the object lessons in this book. We use them all the time. If my bright child comes home from school and says, "Mom, John says I'm an idiot." I say, "Well, are you an idiot?" He'll smile & say "no". Then I'll remind him that the 'dots only stick if you let them'.Also, whenever people ask who my hero is, I tell them Lucia. I know she's fictional, but I want to be just like her and not let the dots nor the stars stick!Kid's books are so much fun. :)

I read this book today while looking after a 2 year old. She was sat in a cupboard 'reading' to her teddies while I was on the floor, sobbing, reading this book. Even for children who aren't religious, this is such an important message for children to learn. You can't let people tell you that you aren't good enough. You are special. You are loved.

I like this book. I have mixed feelings about the message of it. When I think of what I think the author was trying to say, I feel good about it. But when I start to think of what it could actually mean from a practical standpoint, I'm not sure whether I agree wholeheartedly. Hence, just "I Liked It."
