This book was read to my class during Guidance time. This was an interesting book to read because it was all about empathy and how to be empathetic. It was cool to listen to empathy being brought down to an elementary level so that they could really understand what it is and how to be empathetic.
This is a must read at the beginning of the year. We have all heard of standing in someone's shoes, but do kids understand what that means? I will have this story in my library to read to all students at the beginning of the year.
