How often do we hear words that spark us back to life? Do we believe that we are valuable, worthy, and loved even when we make mistakes? Rather, do we believe that we are a mistake? Throughout our day, our brain has up to 1,600 thoughts.

A recent study indicated that 80% (1,300-1,400) of those thoughts are often negative. If we are thinking negatively, it will spill out onto others. A person’s worth and value is beyond any price. Daily, a person is worthy of receiving love no matter what they do. The meaning of the word value means regard that something or someone is thought to deserve, the importance, worth, or usefulness of something. It can also mean that a person’s principles or standards of behavior and judgement about what is important in life. It seems that if we view every person to be valuable, it may shift our entire conversation with the other person. How many times have we been in a conversation with someone and, due to hurt or our anger, words did not come out with positive intentions? How often do we reflect and think about how our words affect someone else? This book really takes on the perspective of children and for them to learn how they can positively learn how valuable they are as a person.

Love is often a word in conversations among people without thinking about its deep meaning. Love is unconditional, meaning that no matter what happens, a person is still worthy of love. Even in a fight or when they do something that can truly hurt others, they are still worthy of love. Often, we label people based on one decision and deem them an outcast from deserving love. This is opposite of the truth. The truth is that all people, regardless of their daily choices, are worthy of receiving love from others. Truly, we are all people with flaws who deserve love throughout our entire lifetime.

Love is messy in that very manner because it means that at times, even though we may be hurt by something someone does, we continue to perceive them through the lens of them being worthy of love at all times. In essence, love is a choice. Love is the deepest power to heal at all times. We often forget that children become adults who heard all kinds of messages about themselves. Most adults have never fully recovered from the words people said to them as a child. In fact, many people start to affirm false statements about themselves. For instance, often what we hear about ourselves as a child effects our youth and adulthood. It can also be the perception of the words spoken over them. For example, a young child may accidentally spill milk. In that moment, they can be hear words such as, 

Let’s get some paper towels to clean up the milk then get some more milk. The words are spoken a calm tone. They may hear, That was a dumb mistake.

Although the person may not have said they were a mistake, the child may begin internalizing the words in that manner. It is so important for us to remember to uplift others even in times of great mistake and misstep. I think every human being can remember a time where they felt like they missed the mark. The messages in this book is helpful to read to children in the womb through adulthood. The words that we speak to ourselves or to others show that every human being is valuable no matter what happens during their day. The pictures depict children that speak about being worthy, loved, or valuable in funny or not so funny situations. For example, sometimes we are valuable if we pick our nose or if we say mean words to our brother.

The book depicts children from various backgrounds. One of the best features of this book is allowing children to review the book. Children, ranging from ages 3 to 12, provided feedback about why they loved the book. There is also a young adult sharing a review. The final fireworks in this book is allowing pages for children to become their own author. They can complete a sentence ending about why they are loved, valued, and worthy.
