The Tallest of Smalls

Information taken from the ThomasNelson website...

An encouraging message for children: When you feel like you’re the smallest of smalls, Jesus’ love can make you feel like the tallest of talls.

A delightful rhyming story about the Too-Smalls who live in the Stiltsville. Every evening a six, the Too-Smalls meet in the square where they hope they’ll be picked to receive stilts to strut about above the stilt-less masses below. They come to see if they matter—if they’re awesome, if they’re pretty, if they’re clever, or funny. Ollie, the smallest of too-smalls, pleas to be picked. He wants to be like the high-ups of Stiltsville who are proud of their stilts, the ultimate status. But once he gets stilts, oh how it hurts when he stumbles and tumbles and loses his stilts. That is . . . until he meets Jesus who chose low over high telling him, "Keep your feet on the ground. You matter already.”

This book for kids coordinates with Max's trade book, Fearless, releasing in September 2009.

Here is Max Lucado talking about the book...


I really like this book. Great message and wonderful illustrations. I read it to my 3 kids (ages 2, 6 & 7) and they all enjoyed it. We have several children's books by Lucado and they are some of our favourites. The Tallest of Smalls would make a great addition to any child's library and would also make a great gift!
