it was amazing

A touching true story of Mercedes Simon, a young German girl, and her friend Gail Halvorsen, an american pilot. Together they bring joy, and love to the children and families of West Berlin by dropping candy-filled parachutes during the Airlifts of World War II.
As a reader it was very easy to fall in love with such a wonderful true story. It's hard to even imagine how much these small acts of kindness meant to these children. I love anything World War II related, even if it brings me to tears at time, like this book did.
I believe that this book might be a difficult read for certain clients in a therapy session. It would probably be best to give to an older client. One who could understand the emotions that these characters feel.
