my review

This was an adorable and meaningful poem. I usually don’t read too much poetry as they can confuse me and I never seem to be able to get the rhythm of reading the words. However, I’m happy to say there was nothing confusing about this children’s poem. Its inclusive and warm message will be sure to touch many children’s and adults’ hearts, like it did mine.

One of my favorite aspects of the book were the illustrations. There were different races, genders, and scenes throughout the book that I couldn’t help but smile the entire time.

I loved reading this book and can see this being part of my home library (once we find a home!).

My Rating5 stars


Children and adults who enjoy reading an inclusive message about peace and joy during this time of year will certainly enjoy this one!
