I just LOVE This book!!! Simple yet such a great lesson of helping someone not like the rest of us so they can also do what others are doing to have fun. Mind and creativity over matter. How Ricky felt left out but all the other rocks put their heads together to come up with a solution! WONDERFUL!!! Instead of how people laugh at someone different or who can't do things as well - a great book to teach kids how to care about others and pull together to solve a problem in order to help others out! Bria the ladybug was so great to add to the story! Love Ladybugs and they are kind of quietly sitting there in nature around us! The illustrations are simple but so delightful and the look on poor Ricky Rock's sad face that is transformed into the gussied up Ready to roll RICKY with the vines and ONE FEATHER is just hysterical...!!! Love it!
