In case you couldn’t tell from my glowing description above, I loved this book! The author highlighted the pain of being different and how finding just one person or mammal who is similar creates a shift in our world…ergo we are no longer alone and we can now cope and even attempt to broaden our horizons. She made the point about a change in perspective and appreciating who you are with just the right touch of sensitivity. Mrs. Stewart’s experience as an educator is clear in the way she breaks it down and drives the point home. No matter the hand you are dealt, it is still possible to reach for the stars…and touch them!
Perfect if you’re trying to help children understand about loss, unfairness of life, and overcoming difficulties and reaching for the stars. Be sure to get a copy!
