Sammy the saguaro cactus realizes he's stuck, planted firmly in the ground with no way to move, run, or roam. Snake can slither, Hawk can soar, Jackrabbit can hop, but Sammy must stay rooted in one spot. This all makes Sammy sad, and he starts to wish he could be more like his friends and less like himself.
Could there be a reason Sammy is stuck in one place? Did God make him like this on purpose? In this fun, rhyming board book for kids ages 2 to 6, Sammy realizes that God made him sticky stuck so he can help many of his friends in his desert community.
The message of God Made You to Be You is valuable to children: God made you unique for a reason. So be brave and be yourself! Instead of comparing yourself to others, be the person God made you to be, and do what God created you to do, only then can you find true joy.
