In the same way, children need to hear again and again that their Heavenly Father loves them and wants to spend time with them--even if they're not wonderfully talented or extremely smart or exceptionally popular. That message of God's unconditional acceptance and deep desire to enjoy a friendship with His children is at the heart of this book.
Just the Way You Are, originally published as The Children of the King, has been newly illustrated to enchant a whole new generation of youngsters. At the same time, it gives parents and grandparents fresh opportunities to write God's never-changing desire on tender souls.
Combining the warm narrative of best-selling author Max Lucado and the classic illustration of award-winning artist Sergio Martinez, Just the Way You Are will entertain young readers as it teaches them a truth that can open their hearts to Christ. That truth--the assurance of God's delight in them--is a blessing that has eternal impact for all children of the King everywhere. Recommended for ages 3 and up.
