It touched me. I feel so amazing hearing about this little girl that showed kindness to people that wanted to heart her and it worked out well. It was the best story I’ve ever read!😍😍😍👏👏😊😁
This book is appropriate for children of any age but since I am not a parent I would probably have a different opinion then most grownups. My teacher read me the story at school and I think it is a very good informational story for children and I think that any aged children would be very interested in the story if they were interested in things like Black history month and all that stuff. I would like to thank the creators of this book for making this book because it is a very interesting book and I don’t understand why someone would not want to read it. Again thank you very much for the creators of this book to make this book . I recommend this book to anyone that thinks it’s interesting. If it’s not interesting to you then that’s definitely way out of my opinion.
