It’s interesting that the main character is neither named nor illustrated. That subtly reinforces that life is not all about us.
This sounds like a thoughtful book with a great message. Thank you for a lovely review!

This book hits all the markers for a good children's book: a powerful message, amazing illustrations, and age-appropriate language. Thanks for the recommendation!

Sounds like a really interesting book that teaches great life lessons to children. I always believe in this statement - "Start 'em young!" Your review alone is wonderful and entertaining, I am sure that the book is equally fascinating.
Yeah, it's a statement that works like magic. It's difficult to forget what you learned in your early stages of life. Thank you.

Wish I had this book when I was a kid. Even so, it's a lesson I still need to re-learn from time to time. Thanks for your well-written review.
We’re gonna need a bigger bookshelf.
