A small book with a simple message.Lessons Learnt 1 Let not the opinions of others make you a prisoner You are special.2 Do not judge the other Each one is special.3 Value yourself and the others just for what you and they are. 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 creator for our perspective on our worth In my personal philosophy, I deemphasize the notion of self esteem and instead prefer what I call Christ esteem having a sense of self worth that is based on how the Savior sees us I appreciate Lucado s story for teaching this message. You Are Special 30 4 1397 3.5.Oscar Wilde Be yourself everyone else is already taken. I just read this 4 times for my 1 year old nephew so don t judge me for using this towards my reading challenge 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 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. .
