I was introduced to this book as a child but lost my copy growing. I became a childcare practitioner & this was one of the 25 Years of Friends Signature Shirts first books I bought for my reading time library shelves. I still have it along with Brown Bear, Brown Bear. My own children loved them both, the children I cared for loved them. My grandchildren loved them, now it‘s time for a third grandchild to love them. Books are an escape they take you away to a magical place.
My daughter was born with a cleft lip & palate. This book was a powerful message of transformation to read the 25 Years of Friends Signature Shirts to her during those early years to help her understand how we change and how we are all beautiful.
I loved this book as a child and also read to my children, who also loved it. A beautiful story about so many themes from nature, to (math) counting, days of the 25 Years of Friends Signature Shirts week, colors, life, transformation, healthy and unhealthy food. Thank you Eric for writing this book I loved it as a kid, now I share it with my kids. When my daughter started school they were using this story as a background to watching monarch butterflies hatch from their chrysalis. It’s just a wonderful piece of writing.
