Another random WeGiveBooks read.

This one was a little better than the last one, I think, but only in that it actually had a story. But honestly, I liked it less, and what story was there, I think could have been much better.

I know that this is for kids (the age range is 4-7), but I felt like there were a lot of issues with this one. Not only were there missing commas all over the place, but this was nothing but tell, tell, tell, and the story jumped around quite a lot.

This is a wonderful book - based on a true story - about the example of a loving and kind 6 year old. You are never to young to be of service to those in need. This is a great book to teach young ones, to be thoughtful and creative in helping others.
I plan to read this one several times to my young children.
You can read it for free to your wee ones on, all at the same time as giving some service to ensure young children around the world can have access to good books!

Unexpectedly amazing. This story is terrific because it shows a six year old girl thinking up her own ideas to make a difference. Even though she works hard, there isn't necessarily a perfectly happy ending. There are ups and downs, triumphs and disappointments. This book would be ideal for a child experiencing the death of a friend. It is available on We Give Books for free right now.

This real story teaches children that they can make a positive change in life. By a kind try the heroine in the story brought happiness to her beloved teacher's life. This is an educational story in indirect way. It teaches a lot and should be translated to different languages.

A lot of text for age recommendation. Nice story though.
