Little Jordan has a problem. He loves to be with his friends at school, but his skin color and hair texture is different from theirs. Jordan thinks God doesn't love him because he looks different. He soon prays for a change in his appearance so he can look just like his friends. With the help of his parents and teacher, Jordan comes to understand that he has been beautifully and wonderfully made by God's hands. He discovers that sometimes his friends may even want to look like him. Jordan learns that he is loved because of the kindness on the inside and not his appearance on the outside.
“The authors have created a warm, charming character that is, at a young age, aware that going to God in prayer is the best way to get help with problems. The issues of self-esteem are dealt with in a forthright manner that easily registers with young readers.” —Sandra Jowers, Precious Times
