this is a great story of how we each have our differances, but are alike also... wonderful parallel for children
I read this book to my child when she was about 4. To begin with, this book has the most beautiful artwork. The coloring is bold, rich & bright! That is one of the things my child & I both really enjoyed. The story is one all of us, as human beings, can learn from -- how to compromise with others, even those who are really different from you; and that even though we are different, we all need many of the same things. My child and I read hundreds of books and this was one of our all time favorites - especially mom's!
