“A Great Heart Warming Story”

I liked everything about this book. The illustrations are so beautiful and the story will teach a lot about the uniqueness of each child and how we should all embrace our differences unapologetically.

“Great and Easy To Read”

My only dislike is that it could have been longer. The topics shared from the view of a parent, I know is endless. The message is clear and it’s the perfect take a way for all parents.
