I highly recommend this book, but with a caution. This awesome book demonstrates the value of showing kindness to others, regardless of the kind of peer pressure that encourages youth to shun those who they perceive to be different than them. Part of the value of the book is that it demonstrates that there isn’t always a “happily ever after” ending to each story, as we don’t always get a 2nd chance. My caution is to read and evaluate this book before reading it to/with any child who is shy or feeling shunned or bullied. I unknowingly read it to my extremely shy 5 year old granddaughter (who also has a speech disorder) & she was sad for the rest of the day. Unfortunately for her, the book reinforced all the fears she had about being brave and trying to reach out and talk to others in an attempt to make friends, as she immediately related to the young girl in the book who was being shunned.

This very original book contains a haunting truth: We don't always get a second chance to do the right thing. I recommend the book to every elementary school teacher out there, but I also think that it serves as a catalyst for some important conversations between parents and their kids. You'll be thinking about this book for a long time....

"This gorgeously illustrated, quiet, and realistically melancholy story delivers its message gently yet indelibly, bringing home the full emotional impact of having missed one's final chance to make up for hurting someone else. For another honest look at kid-level relationship dynamics, check out Mary Ann Rodman's My Best Friend, also illustrated by Earl B. Lewis."
