Giveaway for Tallest of Smalls, by Max Lucado. Illustrations by Maria Monescillo

November 1, 2009

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED

I think both children and adults will enjoy The Tallest of Smalls. The story is written in a rhyming parable, showing that we can never be quite good enough to elicit the world’s adoration for long, but, that really isn’t what is important, after all. The artwork is exquisite. I love the beautiful little faces Maria Monescillo draws. The characters are so expressive, and the colors, so vibrant. My four year old and twelve year old daughters are reading it over and over:)

I loved Max Lucado’s book, Fearless. You can read my review of that book, here. I found that his voice is clear and his writing is concise and useful. I loved how he just put into words some of my worst fears (you know, the ones you do not talk about, like, “what if my child is very ill”, or “my husband is in a horrible wreck”) and then, dissected them, bit by bit, and rid them of their terror…using God’s word. The man is definitely a gifted writer. I respect that God has given him that gift.

And, as a mom, I am so excited when I can share something with my children that is special. I think it is funny that Max chose to develop this children’s book based on chapter two of his book, Fearless. To be frank, I skimmed chapter two! I was looking for serious help with my fears–and now, I am realizing that chapter was pretty important…
