My thoughts:
I LOVED THIS BOOK! It was so beautiful. I actually got teary-eyed while I was reading it. Growing up most kids encounter a time when they feel different and it's so hard for parents to reassure them that they are just the way they are suppose to be. I loved how this book felt as if it was being read directly to your child. This book is a must in every household. Kids need to be reminded daily that they are perfect just the way God created them. 5 Stars!
