Amy’s Extra Tail Tale
Share this book with your children! It shows how, even with all our differences, love and compassion are constants in each of us, regardless of the level of our physical or intellectual capabilities. A complex subject becomes straightforward and understandable in Gongora’s tale, which is also beautifully illustrated. Highly recommended.
Amy's Extra Tail Tale
This is a story of empathy and contains beautiful illustrations. Amy has opened her mother's heart and enhanced the lives of others. With the metaphors of a flying fish, reflections of ourselves, and the beautiful and softened colors, we experience the joy of learning her story. The difference of a single chromosome has united rather than divided us, which is an important lesson for our times. The message of joy is profound, and I highly recommend this book.
