Today we read the story ‘You are Special’ by Max
Lucado about a small wooden doll called Punchinello. In the village where Punchinello lives the other wooden dolls give out bright star stickers for nice looking dolls and grey dot stickers for dolls with peeling paint. Punchinello is sad because he is covered in grey dot stickers. In the end Punchinello learns to not listen to what the other wooden dolls say. He learns that the only people’s opinions that matter are those closest to him. As he learns this the grey stickers begin to fall off. This made us think about what makes us special!
