I just love this book which gives children such positive aspects they can have in life! So many children in our world are in situations with not much hope and if I was wealthy - I'd buy this book to give to each one of them! To me I'd even give this book to some adults! It reminds me of the dual purpose of my very favorite book "The Giving Tree" which is simple enough for children but profound enough to give to adults you wish goodness for! I love the cute illustrations including all the dogs and cats and how at the back there is a page to have a game for the kids of spotting each character in the story. Also inserting famous people as characters in the illustrations! What a great idea! I highly recommend this for a gift for anyone you know - child or adult - who needs some love and encouragement!
