Little Kid Reaction:
"I really liked everything about this book. Everything in this book helped me understand that you need to take care of the Earth and each other."
Big Kid Reaction:
This book is very nicely constructed. There is a lot of information in this book and would be good to read over a series of nights, not just one. It is very interactive and is a great tool for helping your child discover why giving to others is important and would make a great gift. What’s nice about this book is that it doesn’t just focus on monetary giving but the giving of one’s time and skills.

It is laid out in eye-catching designs that are sure to draw in children and there are just enough words on the page to keep a younger child’s attention.

None.
