Fun and Thoughtful Story on Embracing Change

by mleicy (WorldCat user published 2020-08-20) Excellent Permalink

I love this book! I read it to my nephew and he enjoyed it, too! The artwork is unique and vibrant. It's a fun and thoughtful story addressing fear and embracing change. After reading the story, my nephew and I were on a walk and saw a butterfly and I said, "Look, there's Kibble!"
