The Special: A Story about Self-Esteem
Written and illustrated by Kirsten Jany 


Kirsten Jany was born and raised in Germany, and emigrated to Canada in 1996. She works in television post production as a sound engineer, and resides in Burlington, Ontario. In her spare time she volunteers with various animal rescues and keeps busy with her four dogs. The Special is a story she had to tell her daughter Jovienne almost every night-and Fleecy always remained Jovi's favorite toy!


When a little lamb finds herself the last toy on the store shelf, she worries. With no electronics, no buttons, and not even a fancy outfit, what does she have to offer to a child?


“This book has a cute storyline. It's about a stuffed toy, a lamb, who is picked last at the toy store, but learns to appreciate itself and the unique value it brings anyway. It's a nice story that carries with it a valuable lesson for young children to learn, that they carry inherent value even if it doesn't seem like it when they compare themselves with others.” -  Bron Whitley
