Adorable illustrations and wonderful story. Great to use as a teaching tool on how we all are not perfect (some of us more "broken" than others) but we are all special.

"God can take our biggest mistakes and turn them into something good. No matter what, always remember that you can take your failures to Him. He loves you  and He will make something beautiful in His time."
This was two stories in one. The main story of the dog stepping on and breaking the crayons that two little girls are coloring with and the bedtime story of a man in India with a broken pot that inadvertently watered flowers and made them grow. I think really, I loved this part of the story best.

And then at the end there are some great questions and Bible verses to look up with the children and a prayer! I feel like with this book you get the whole package! I love that.

I am looking forward to using this with my granddaughter (when she is born!).
