A must read! This book was perfect in introducing a friendship that may look a little different than most. It depicts acceptance which there needs to be more of. A perfect read for young children!
This book is great if your child is struggling with allergies or mast cell issues but also I’d recommend it to all parents to help their children read about the struggles others face and how to persevere through them, there’s a lot to be learned here. The book is very engaging with comprehensive questions to get your children talking about what’s happening and how it can relate to them and how they would feel. Charming Book.
