About "You Are Mine"

In this wonderful sequel to Lucado's best-selling YOU ARE SPECIAL, Punchinello learns that he is special, not because of what he has, but because he belongs to his maker. A reassuring message for every child.
- Koorong

When Punchinello tries to prove his worth by getting more boxes and balls than the other Wemmicks, he learns that his maker, Eli, loves him because of who he is and not what he possesses.
- Publisher

Boxes and balls. They were the latest thing! Fancy balls. Colorful boxes. All the Wemmicks had them. All, that is, except Punchinello. Not wanting to be left out, he resolved to fit in. He would do whatever it took to have what others had. He never imagined it would cost him so much. Eli, his maker, used the moment to remind Punchinello of this truth: "You are special, not because of what you have, but because you are mine." Could you or someone you love use the same reminder?
- Publisher

Bigger allowances. Better clothes. More toys. ^Bigger, better, more is how the world determines who's special and who's not. It's a message your kids are hearing every day. But it's not God's message. ^His truth is simple and never-changing: It's not what you have, it's Whose you are. And it's a truth that the lovable Wemmick, Punchinello, hears again at the knee of his creator in this faithful, fully illustrated sequel to You Are Special. ^Punchinello's lesson in love will help you speak God's heart to the heart of every child: You are special, not because of the things you have, but because you are Mine.

A touching reminder that we are God's children
5 stars By AceoftheHouse, Oct 21 2017
This is supposed to be for kids but I loved It anyway....with big font size and the usual Max Lucado children's book style... one page contains a paragraph, side by side  the other page of drawing that basically depicts whatever is written on the paragraph. The Wemmicks story is longer than "You are Special," but it's as good if not better. It's intended for children but it has a touching story that even adults can learn from. The moral of the story is very good, that we should look up to our Maker for happiness and not by acquiring material things and social status. It's highly recommended for children going to's a great introduction to the real world and how God's love is always what we only need to be happy. My toddler didn't stay to finish the book, it's too long for him, though.

A meaningful children's book
5 stars By Mariquita, Jun 30 2017
Max Lucado never fails to write a meaningful story, that teaches readers about how special they are in the eyes of God. This particular story, teaches us about the important message, of how it doesn't matter about what and how many things we have. We matter to God, just because he made us and loves us.
