This story is great for the adult who shares it with their child--and so rich for the child, too. Maybe it will open the door to sharing about good and not-so-good emotions that we all experience during our days. It also illustrates healthy problem-solving, as well as kindness and thoughtfulness for others, which 3, 4, and 5 year olds must learn.
