We have found this to be an excellent book for children age 3 to approximately 12 years. This book presents a realistic portrayal of a child's feelings concerning his stressful environment, and how he finds a positive message through his community and family -- a message that will change his life -- and will further remind us readers of how we can live our lives in a positive way. Although the photographs portray an AFrican-American culture, the message cuts across racial boundaries. The photographs are beautiful, realistic, and sensitive, and Mr. Cole's writing shows a good understanding of children's insights and feelings. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
