Unwrapping Some Illustrations for you


The Book   

Sammy the cactus is an adorable little character that lives in the desert.  He looks around and notices that all his desert friends are mobile and can move around and play but he is sticky stuck in the ground unable to move.  Snake can slither, hawk can soar, Jackrabbit can hop but oh my, Sammy is rooted in the sand.  He is going nowhere! 

Sammy is sad about his stationary plight and starts imagining what life would be like if he had been created in different forms just like his friends.  

His buddies come to his aid and explain to him how important he is and all the wonderful things he IS capable of doing.  They remind him that God creates everything for a purpose.  Kids will be inspired and encouraged by this positive message that each person is unique and are designed just as God intended them to be. 

This board book is written in rhyme and the illustrations are delightful.  They are colourful, creative, imaginative and engaging.  The book is short and the message is positive and powerful. All ages will benefit from its message. I highly recommend it.
