This book is a great reminder to any age students about the importance of being kind to other and sharing. Not to mention the pictures are gorgeous beyond means. The story painted from page to page honestly captivates even some of the oldest readers like myself and everyone can use a friendly reminder on how to treat others from time to time. This is a great book to read during the beginning weeks of school to remind students about the rules and procedures in the classroom and what is expected from each student. Let the students discuss ways they can share in their own lives with their partners during a turn and talk and maybe allow a few to share. Also, using this story to describe physical and inner character traits in a lesson would be great to understand that greedy can’t be seen on the outside but is a character trait.
