Okay, so this book was seriously cute. The artistry was amazing, the story adorable, and the lessons to learn plentiful. I loved that family and learning to be yourself were big themes in this children's story. Patience and appreciating the sparks of happiness in our lives were other focuses I enjoyed. This is a book I would love to add to my collection for when I have kids sometime in the future. Highly recommend!

I was not compensated for my honest review.

Such a darling book! I bought this for our soon to be born daughter, anticipating hearing her little voice imitating Little Wolf's learning to howl. Cute illustrations and a cute story!
Really cute book about the special relationship between grandparent and grandchild. Makes the point that there are some things grandparents are more easily able to teach than parents. The pictures make this book-they are such a unique blend of cartoonistic and impressionistic-realistic styles.
