Review: I'd Choose You - John Trent - May 2011
As a child throughout school, if you don't exactly fit into what others expect it can be quite difficult, as I was never very good at sports or art so nobody picked me to be on their team till last which by then it meant that they had to have you on their team as nobody was left, you know the order they call it - the real sporty ones go first, then the average ones and then left as stragglers are the non-athletes- the ones left behind.
"The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his prized possession " Deuteronomy 7v6
Poor Norbet has had the worst day ever , and feels like he is unloved and nobody wants him, can Norbet's mother show him that he is the most special thing in the world to her and that God wants Norbert just the way he is and wouldn't have him any other way.
A story that is bound to put a smile on every child who has ever had a bad day whether it be at school for one reason or another -on their faces.
Everyone knows what it's like to have a bad day. And when Norbert comes home from school, he has had a really bad day. As he and his mother talk through the day's mishaps, she gently imparts The Blessing on him through spoken word, meaningful touch, attachment of high value, portraying a special future, and genuine commitment.
By the end of the book, Norbert knows he is loved, and that even if he wasn't the first pick for the team, he will always be chosen by his parents . . . and by God.
