The Huckabirds Learn about Self-Worth
by J. R. Huckaby

This book is 3-in-1. It includes two full illustrated children’s stories and a chapter for adults. The combination of two stories and the help for adults together give common language, images, discussion questions, and practical application for understanding this crucial topic. Most people in the fields of child development, social work, and psychology agree that a pivotal factor in what occurs both inside and between people is the picture of self-worth that each person carries inside.

This book is intended for young children and the significant adults in their lives: parents, grandparents, teachers, care-givers, and therapists. Children will find the artsy, playful Huckabirds appealing and will relate to their real life experiences. Adults desiring to give children a Christian perspective and to be intentional in raising healthy, whole-hearted children will be helped and encouraged by the teaching chapter in the back.

"As a pediatrician, I try to offer lessons of truth for raising kids. How I wish I had the Huckabirds when I was a young parent and how thankful I am that I can share these with my patients and parents."

—R. Michael Green, MD

"This book helps children understand the invaluable truth about their own worth -- that they are loved, belong, and celebrated by the God of the universe. It not only paints a beautiful overarching theological perspective of identity, but also gives parents practical advice on how to help their child avoid comparison and instead to live out of their innate value and worth. I highly recommend it to children and parents alike!"

—Summers McMurray, Psy.D., licensed clinical psychologist

"You can't help but love the Huckabirds! As a former elementary school educator and current Preschool Director in a large, faith-based school, the Huckabirds series engages children to learn about themselves, others, and how God celebrates our differences. These captivating books provide parents additional support in building core Christian principles in their children's lives. I recommend this wonderful series to benefit generations of family members!"

—Karen Witcher, Director, Cedar Springs Weekday School
