My work had its quarterly staff meeting today, and I was asked to read a children’s book out loud. I chose this one because it is one of my favorite stories, and also because it does such a great job — in text and illustrations– of really conveying what it feels like to be a child.
This book has brought me to tears. Its resolution is so loving and respectful of children.
I am so, so warmed by children’s books that GET it. This one does.
