Buddy is a corgi, but he isn’t like most dogs of this breed. At first, he didn’t like being different because it made him feel weird and not special at all. When he was born, he never knew he was different. It wasn’t until he was playing and met one of the horses that he came to discover he wasn’t like his brothers or sisters. The horse told him he was strange and didn’t look like the rest. He knew his tail was longer but it wasn’t until Nelly the horse told him he was nearly blue that he discovered how his differences didn’t end with his tail. Finding this out made Buddy very sad, and he cried, wondering if he was even a corgi at all. His mom heard him crying and comforted him by telling Buddy that being different isn’t bad; everyone has something special about them.

Once again Suzanna Lynn has done a wonderful job in the most recent book about Buddy the blue corgi. You Are Special is a very adorable and informative book that children will love to read. The colorful pictures and illustrations definitely draw attention to the storyline and plot which give them focus. In You Are Special, the message is very clear; everyone is different in his or her own way and that’s all right. It’s what makes everyone special. I think a lot of children have doubts about this at various stages of their development and it’s a good thing to remind them they are normal, and they are all right. It helps them eventually find their own voice and to march to the beat of their own drum, to take what’s different about them and to use what gifts God gave them. You Are Special is definitely worth sharing with the kids.
