Author Rachael Denhollander is a survivor of sexual abuse. (If you would like to read more about her story follow this link: What is a Girl Worth by Rachael Denhollander–Book Review) The decision to come forward with her complaint was difficult, but she wanted to protect others from in similar circumstances. After asking herself over and over, “how much is a girl worth?” she wrote a poem to answer the question. The message is simple: every little girl is valuable, not because of what she does, but because of who she is –the beloved child and image-bearer of the One Who created her. God loved each little girl so much that he was willing to sacrifice His own Son for her good.
The illustrations are lovely and depict girls of different races in a variety of environments. The Gospel message presented is simple and clear. If you have a daughter, you’ll want to read this one with her over and over. It’s probably best for children aged 5-8.
VERDICT: 5 STARS
