Finally, the citizens of Wemmicksville are saying that Punchinello is a good Wemmick! He's always wanted to hear that. But in his effort to please the crowd, Punchinello forgets what his maker Eli has taught him. So when others start collecting boxes and balls, Punchinello decides he wants to have some too. They make him feel so good--until he remembers how his arms ache from holding them all. Until he remembers how tired he is from working just to buy more. Until he stumbles into Eli's workshop and is reminded of how very much he's given up to have those boxes and balls. Once again at the knee of his creator, Punchinello hears the words he needs the most: "You are special, not because of the things you have, but because you are mine." This best-selling sequel to You Are Special is now available in board book format, encouraging hearts of every age to learn of the love of their Heavenly Father. Not just for the little ones in your life, e challenge you to finish this book without it touching your heart and bringing a tear to your eye..

Reviews - What do customers think about Wemmicks: You Are Mine Board Book?

great story  Jul 24, 2008
I love this story and was planning on getting it for my daughter at some point- when I saw it as a board book I decided to get it right away! The book seems well made and has nice bold, vibrant illustrations. The only negative thing I noticed about it- and I noticed it right away when I received it- is the fact that it has pointy edges. Most board books are rounded at the corners. It's not a huge deal, but for young kids/babies who are clumsy and put everything in their mouths, it seems like a poor design.
 
What the story is about...  Sep 17, 2005
I've read through all the reviews and since the storyline hasn't been mentioned, I thought I'd do so. These books are quite the hit in our house with our little one.

In this adventure, two Wemmicks Nip and Tuck start a little competition in who has the neatest box. They then try to top each other by adding balls to their boxes. Pretty soon, the other townspeople decided that they have to have the prettiest boxes and balls as well, and they carry them around so that everyone can see just how many beautiful boxes and balls they have. Punchinello, at the consternation of his friends, buys into this scenario and eventually, winds up selling EVERYTHING that he has, including his house, to buy all the boxes and balls that he can. Finally, the mayor's wife decides that to be the best, you have to stand on the highest hillside and/or mountain to show off your "stuff." So, all the Wemmicks climb up the mountain, including Punch, to try to be the best of all.

However, Punchinello winds up going off the path since he can scarcely carry, let alone see where he's going, with all his boxes and balls. He therefore, stumbles into Eli's workshop where he drops all of his boxes and balls. Realizing just where he was, Punch is too embarassed to look at his maker and just initially lies on the floor, face down amongst all his "things." After Eli calls his name, he sheepishly looks up and a discussion begins after Eli asks Punch if all those things really makes him happy. Punch says they do not, only Eli makes him happy. Eli also asks Punch to look out the window to see all the Wemmicks climbing and falling up the hill, trying to be the best. He asks Punch if he thinks that Eli made Wemmicks to act like that (i.e., scurrying around, literally making fools out of themselves for material goods that mean nothing but "status" to them. They don't use the boxes and balls, they just carry them around. They discard their friends, family just for "things."). Punch says "no," because he knows that Eli made all Wemmicks to be with him and love him just as Punch does.

One of the neatest parts of this book is the very end when Punch turns to go but realizes that since he sold his bed and his house, that he has no place left to go. So, he asks his Maker, Eli, if he can spend the night there. Of course Eli says yes and the last page is little Punch, curled up all snug and warm sound asleep in his Maker's house. Wow... Is there any place safer that feels like home? Nope! That's just so neat. Lucado did an excellent job on painting the feeling behind the "warm fuzzies" in that last paragraph.

Here's another meaning for this story - no matter how far you stray, no matter what you do, the Maker is still there waiting for you to come home.

Highly recommend!
 
You Don't Have to Be Mine  May 30, 2005
Helen Gurley Brown once said that no good girl ever turned bad because of a book, and I maintain the reverse is probably true as well: no bad child ever turned good because of a book, either. So while Mr. Lucado's aim of teaching children that material possessions don't make us valuable in the eyes of our Creator is an admirable one, buying the child a book that says so is probably not the most effective means of teaching it. Borrow the book from your public library, and have your child donate the $15.99 to a local charity instead.
 
You are mine  Jan 6, 2005
Max Lucado is an incredible author. His children's books are fabulous. How sad that someone would consider it poison. I pray God would open your eyes.
 
What's offensive?  Sep 16, 2004
I just loved this book, I went over it again after reading the previous review concerning "offensive material". Nonexistent. Eli doesn't claim to hate the Wemmicks for behaving that way, he is tolerant of their behavior,they are his creation. The same way God loves us, he may notlike how we behave on a given occasion, or our choice of lifestyle, but He loves us. Eli wouldn't turn a Wemmick away, and God never turns us away. When He's not in ourlives it's us who have turned our backs on Him. Read and give this book freely, it sends positive messages on several levels.
