"Values are something that is sorely lacking in society today. This book (and series) helps gently nudge children into inspecting on how their behaviors impact others. I will be recommending this to our school district to add to our existing socio-emotional learning curriculum!"
- Megan J, Amazon.com verified review
"One of the best ways for kids to internalize appropriate behavior is through listening to an engaging story. What a great way to use a familiar fairytale and adapt it in a new and fresh way. "
