The Pray Me a Story series uses popular children’s books as a springboard for entering into imaginative prayer. Pray Me a Story is designed for use by catechists, religion teachers, parents, grandparents—anyone who prays with children of any age.
This kit includes the hardcover book You Are Special and an 8-page booklet to guide the adult with step-by-step instructions on how to share and discuss the story. After hearing the story, the child is gently guided into the scene to meet Jesus and prayerfully speak to him as one friend speaks to another.
You Are Special is a story about a group of small wooden people called Wemmicks. All day long they give each other shiny gold stars or ugly gray dots. Punchinello, one of the Wemmicks, meets Lucia who has no stars or dots. He wonders why nothing sticks to her. As children listen to the story, they are asked to think about how it feels when they know they are loved.
