Description

"This story is uplifting and will be a strong resource for teachers to talk about the importance of kindness. VERDICT A must for all libraries. It is not only a beautifully told story, but its message is full of heart. Children will love engaging in 'what would I do?' scenarios." – School Library Journal  (starred review)
