Overview:

Rachel Denhollender stepped into the national scene on the day she gave her poignant speech at the trial of Larry Nassar – the doctor who abused more than a hundred young girls. (The number is probably a lot higher – no one knows for sure.) Rachel came forward when others didn’t and made the sacrifice of publicly sharing her name. She realized that she had a support system through her faith and family that others didn’t. She is also an attorney, and therefore, understands the law.

Now she has written a book: What is a Girl Worth? recently published by Tyndale and already a best seller. The book is powerfully told about what sexual abuse does to people and her message should be read by every parent, children’s ministry worker and pastor.

But she has gone further and written a book for little girls: How Much Is a Little Girl Worth? This book is a lyrical poem telling children that in God’s sight they are worth very much. Rachel’s poem does not mention abuse, but rather is a positive picture of a child’s value. Morgan Huff’s illustrations are soft and appealing, adding to the tone of the poem itself.
