Book Review - "The Tallest of Smalls"

"The Tallest of Smalls" is Max Lucado's latest children's book that is coming out after the release of his book, "Fearless."  Written in a style quite similar to Dr. Seuss, this book is a delight to read and share with children young and old.  The message that is portrayed through the rhyme of the story is something that everyone needs to be reminded of, that God has created each of us and each of us is special and important to him.  Maria Monescillo is the illustrator for this book and has done an amazing job!  the pictures go along perfectly with the words and draw the reader into the book!
