We all matter - it is an important thing to remember, especially on the hard days. This is a message that everyone needs, and in this book, the author targets that message to children. She shows that even the smallest decisions can have great consequences, that we can learn from one another, and that we all make an impact on the people and world around us.
This is a beautifully written and illustrated book with thought-provoking prose and bright, whimsically painted illustrations. Although the format is that of a board book (with the intended audience being small children), it is a book that will appeal to people of all ages. It will open the eyes of children to the world around them, and remind adults of the importance of being connected in our world. This would be a wonderful book for adults to share with children, and could spark some important discussions.
