Refreshing story in an age of Kardashians

This is a much needed topic to be discussed amongst children from Kindergarten to 8th grade and even into high school if they haven't figured this out yet. Having the latest Toys and accessories doesn't make you a better person. This story shows that true friendship doesn't cost a thing. Looking forward to more books in this series.

What a great way to teach about friendship and it's true value and a good, quick reminder to an adult. I really liked it.

If only I had children to raise again. I would read stories like this to them. I was just getting into the story and then it ended, . Or rather it was the beginning!

A great lesson for kids of all ages!

I got this book for my 10 year old and we ALL loved the story! Every kid needs to learn that things do not buy happiness...only true friendship can make kids happy! A great story!

A fantastic children's book! I loved the message of the book (adults can learn from this also) and the way it was written made it easy to read out loud.
