Oh boy! This was our March book club story. And it was a tearjerker. It was a beautiful story. I just enjoyed so much about this story.
A warning to a future reader. Someone at book club mentioned that their copy had an added chapter, a new ending or something? Don't read it! Just stick to the original story. It is perfect as is.
Forget Don't Sweat the Small Stuff. Read this children's story, and your attitude will get a swift kick in the pants. Fiction can be powerful. If I had children, this would be on the top of the list of stories I'd want them to read. Yup, that means I'll be getting it for my nieces and my godkids.
