God Made You Special!

ISBN: 0310704669


I'm Larry the cucumber,

and I'm here to say; That God made me special in his own special way!

And you're special, too-its the news of the day!

We're special 'cause that's how God made us-it's true! There's no one exactly like me or like you!

God made me special by making me green, Without any hips, I'm tall and I'm lean! God made us all special. It's part of his job.

And to say how he's special, here's my friend-

Yes, it's true, I'm special. I cannot deny it. To say how I'm special is tough-but I'll try it.

There are so many ways. It's a rather large number. For one thing, I'm friends with a talking cucumber!

And I bounce when I walk, and I have a round shape. But so do the Peas, and so does Pa Grape!

God made them green, but not me! No, instead God made me special by making me RED!

See, everyone's special in a different way!

Let's hear from some others

and see what they say!

`allo Boys and Girls! We are zee French Peas!

And we'll tell you how special we are, if you please! Like Larry we're green and like Bob we are round!

But our specialness lies in our French-sounding sound! We speak with zee accent, of which we are proud. It makes us stand out From zee non-accent crowd.

And I'm Archie Asparagus,

bookish and lean! Like most other Veggies I'm also quitegreen. Like Larry I have neither hips nor a chin- So God made me special by making me thin!

My name is Pa Grape!

And I'm special, too. I wear a white mustache and glasses. Do you?

I'm Madame Blueberry

I live in a tree.

Along with six birds and one small bumblebee! I'm round just like Bob and the Peas and Pa Grape, so I'm not very special because of my shape. Then how am I special? It's all in my hue, God made me special by making me blue!

Now let's turn our attention from Madame Blueberry. To two of my gourd friends named Jimmy and Jerry!

Hi, my name is Jimmy! And he's my bro, Jerry.

Like Bob we're good friends with a pickle named Larry. But Bob's shape is round - and we're shaped more like drops, so we're wide at the bottoms, but thin at the tops!

I'm a Cucumber, not a pickle!

Hi, boys and girls! my name's Laura Carrot!

God made me special and I'm dying to share it! For one thing, I'm orange. I'm told that's quite rare. And I wear a bow in my bright yellow hair!

It's true, we're all special. I hope you've had fun! But now cause we've run out of time-we are done!

My name's Mr. Lunt!

    Poor formatting ruins a good book

    This is a very sweet book, but the words aren't properly joined to the images. It's really a shame, as this keeps this from being a great book. If they fixed the formatting issues on the ebook, this would be a 5 star review, easily.

    Young at heart

    This book is also wonderful for slightly older children also my son is 5 and loves these stories also. It explains sometimes complex idea of differences in all people in a way that they can understand.

    Love this book.

    My 10 month old just loves this book. I love how it teaches them that it's okay to be different and that God loves them no matter what because He made them in His own special way. Love Veggie Tales!

    Wonderful!

    My 20 month old son LOVES this book! He laughs when I change voices for each character and wants me to read it over and over again. It's really turned him on to Veggie Tales, which I think is great because they're a wonderful tool for helping to teach good values.

    One Of The Best

    My 3-month old daughter absolutely loves looking at the pictures. She also loves when I change my voice for each character. Plus when she gets older she will know that it's OK to be different.
