This was recommended to me by Alison, our Children’s Buyer, and boy, am I glad she told me to read it. This perfectly illustrated, character-driven picture book puts the reader in the mind of a young girl who instantly judges one of her classmates. Through her, we see how a child who is not innately empathetic to others learns empathy. We learn not to judge by appearances and to gain an understanding about the hardships that our peers may face. It is a beautiful, thought-provoking read that gave me chills by the end. Highly recommended!
