This story has a good lesson about the golden rule, and it's told in way that probably seems real to a kid. Nobody like to be made fun of, and these kids talk about real emotions. The main character raises his fists in anger, which happens in real life when tempers flare, so there's no false treatment and sappy alternatives given. Luckily, the kids don't actually fight but settle their differences. Good moral here.
I thought this book was very interesting and helps young children to learn of children with disabilities and how they enjoy and live their lives with no problem. Most importantly how their disability doesn’t stop them of doing what they love. This book also encourages young children to write books of their experiences just like the author did.

A psychically disabled doesn't matter your characteristic. Like the main role in the story, he has no left hand, but he is still a optimism boy. Nobody should frustrated for the of their body.
