Max Lucado's children's book "the tallest of smalls" is a parable from his book "Fearless". I think this is a fantastic book for children, I read it to my little guys here and they absolutely LOVED it. It was simple enough for them to follow without too much trouble, but still kept their attention. They also absolutely loved the illustrations, we spent more then half the time reading the story looking at and pointing out different things in the pictures.
Lucado provides a great lesson that children in these times really need to learn, That Jesus loves them and that They Matter.
This story is fantastic and I can see already that its going to be a favorite in this house!
