Opinion: This was a great kid’s book. I’ve always loved this author growing up. Her books are always loved her messages in her books. There’s a message of friendship and belonging. This book also talks about that it’s okay to be different. Differences are good, too. I love the pictures in this book. They’re so well done. I recommend this book for older children, as there a page of words next to the page of picture. It’s a great story for kids and belongs in all classes.
