Reviews

An unusual story that explores friendship and gifts - highly suitable for one to five year-olds - wih the quality and ideas to be enjoyed over many readings. IBBY Link For all children looking for friendship wherever they may be. -- Chitra Soundar Very beautiful. Bookwitch This is a book that will be with you forever, we recommend it for all ages of children and adults. DolphinBooks - the blog The picture book can be used as a good way in to a discussion about friendships and morals with children in KS1; it may be a useful book for PSHE lessons to focus on relationships. There are also some beautiful illustrations which enhance the story. The Reading Zone A truly magical tale that brought a tear to my eye; how much a small kindness means and how little we know about the way a small gesture can bring happiness to one we have never met. Delicate illustrations accompany the story to perfection. Parents in Touch This is such a lovely book about the joy of both giving and receiving gifts and the pleasure in sharing those gifts with other. The Reading Zone One of the most beautiful picture books of the year. The Bookseller A story with quiet magic and beauty. Publishers Weekly Starred Review Truly heart-warming. Books for Keeps Five Star Review
