I personally love this book! I actually read this a few months ago in the first grade classroom that I was interning for. This book explains what a true friend is and the importance of finding one. In this story, the main character shows a depth of emotion that many children experience and can relate to. My first graders loved it and I feel it could be read to a variety of different age groups. It¿s beautifully written and illustrated and many meanings can be derived from this book.
