Children's Book Tuesday

While it can hardly be considered great classic children's literature, this rhyme has been special to me since the first time I heard it.
We watched it as one of the 'extras' at the end of a Veggie Tales DVD, and I instantly loved it! I may or may not have even teared up and watched it again after the boys were in bed that night. It was a couple of years ago, so the memory is rusty and that's all I plan to say about that.

Anyway, after watching it, I don't know how I found out it was also in book form, but as soon as I knew, I knew we had to own it. I ordered up pretty quickly, and we gave it to the boys that year for Christmas.

Like the back of the book says, this little story is a beautiful (and fun!) reminder that "we are wonderfully and fearfully made in the image of our Creator" and it is His view of us that is what is really important.

I wouldn't have thought a little Veggie Tales rhyme would have grabbed me so, but this book makes me feel good all over every time I read it! And oh yeah, my kids like it too. :)
