After reading this book, children will be able to receive answers to some of the questions they may have. The author of this book combines questions that children have and answers them through the form of a story. The author also promotes critical thinking by allowing readers to think deeply about each situation. Children will walk away from this book with more understanding about relationships.

Very well written book. Explains a lot to kids in kid terms. I will read this to my son again when he gets older and starts asking more questions.
