Bigger, better, and more is how the world determines who is special and who is not. It’ s a message kids hear every day. But it’ s not God’ s message.
Just like Punchinello, we all want to fit in— to be accepted by the crowd. But at times that may mean either looking and acting like others or risking being rejected.
God’ s truth is simple and unchanging, reminding us that it’ s not what we have that counts, but whose we are. This is a truth the lovable Wemmick, Punchinello, hears again at the knee of Eli, his creator.
Punchinello’ s hard-learned lessons show us how important it is to be who we were created to be, and why that matters. Let the two wonderful tales You Are Mine and If Only I Had a Green Nose— as 2 Books in 1— help you remember these important things: you were made the way you are for a reason, and there is Someone who will always help you be you— wonderfully you.
