    This little book was just adorable I got it for my nephew who has been struggling to share toys with the little boy next door, and I have to say that these pictures were amazing I absolutely loved them, as well as the overall message Not only the message of friendship, but the idea that you don t have to be like everyone else in order to have friends You can just find friends who are like you Such a wonderful lesson for the little ones But also, a wonderful lesson for everyone
