This book is such a great book, and I would use it as a read aloud. It teaches that even though someone may not be our favorite, they still can be helpful and useful and we should always appreciate them. Especially if they're our cousin! I would use this as a read aloud as it teaches that we should appreciate everyone, even the kid in our classroom that you don't necessarily want to be best friends with. I give this book a 5 out of 5.
