Beautiful! Get the tissues ready!

This is a beautifully haunting story that will melt your soul. The illustrations are moving; the audio touches the heart. This story brings me to tears every time. Great to address and discuss themes such as friendship, duty, sacrifice, love. Also available in Spanish.

Another Polacco Classic

Somehow I did not expect it to end like that. My mother has always made a point of reading Patricia Polacco stories to us as kids and like many out there we have cried, laughed and smiled at her tales of growing up and the struggles that she faced. I admit this was an unexpected listen and one that I think people of all ages should remember to enjoy.
