A Poem and a Message

Rachel Denhollender stepped into the national scene on the day she gave her poignant speech at the trail of Larry Nassar – the doctor who abused more than a hundred young girls. (The number is probably a lot higher – no one knows for sure.) Rachel came 

IMG_3317forward when others didn’t and made the sacrifice of publicly sharing her name. She realized that she had a support system through her faith and family that others didn’t. She is also an attorney, and therefore, understands the law.

Now she has written a book: What is a Girl Worth? recently published by Tyndale and already a best seller. The book is a powerful book about what sexual abuse does to people and I think her message should be read by every parent, children’s ministry worker and pastor.

But she has gone further and written a book for little girls: How Much Is a Little Girl IMG_3323.jpegWorth? This book is a lyrical poem telling children that in God’s sight they are worth much. Rachel’s poem does not mention abuse, but rather is a positive IMG_3322.jpegpicture of a child’s value. Morgan Huff’s illustrations are soft and appealing, adding to the tone of the poem itself.

This book would be good in any small child’s library and/or could be a valuable gift for a child who has been abused.

I give it a five out of five,
