Item description for Your Special Gift (Max Lucado's Wemmicks) by Max Lucado & David Wenzel...
Overview The Wemmicks learn that each of them has a special gift with which they can help others.
One morning the people of Wemmicksville wake up to discover that they've all received gifts. Punchinello opens his gift to find a hammer; Lucia receives a paintbrush and set of paints; and Hans, the baker, gets a spoon. Nobody knows who sent the gifts, but each Wemmick receives the perfect gift: Punchinello likes to build, Lucia loves to paint, and Hans enjoys cooking.
When a family of Wemmicks needs help to reach Eli the woodcarver, Punchinello and his friends try to come to their aid. Unfortunately, nothing they do seems to work. Only when they realize that Eli gave them each a special gift are they able to use those gifts to make a difference.
This story will show kids how God has given them a special gift they can use to serve Him.

We checked out one of Max Lucado's book at the library and my kids just loved it. So we bought them some more in the series of the Wemmicks and they love to hear the stories again and again. The colors and illustrations in the books are outstanding.
