I didn't even know I had this book, or I may have utilized it in previous teachings. The dialogue is pretty close to what I included in my (book-less) discussions. The writing is very thoughtful and calmly presented. The pictures are in delicate pastels. There are a couple drawings on the graphic side that I wouldn't want a younger child accidentally coming across. But as for the topic, both writing and illustrations are done tastefully.
