This is a heart-warming and touching story of a little girl's love and pride her in hen, Josefina. I don't want to give the story away, but it is a wonderful story for beginning readers, and for the young at heart, who love something so much that it becomes a part of them for always! This story has everything---love, hope, desperation, courage, history, and it even carries elements of surprise with Josefina along for the 'ride'! As a writer and a reading teacher, this book is a true treasure for any age! This would also make a wonderful gift for anyone,............everyone!!!
My 6-year old love this book. Excellent.
