Some things I loved:
- How the voice of the story is told from a kid's perspective, so it's one kid talking to another.
- The cultural diversity! As well as learning about children all the way on the other side of the world, the narrators neighborhood friends come in a lot of different shades. :)
- How the story opens kids eyes to a sad issue without being sad, and lets them know their is something very real they can do to help.
This I didn't love:
What a great Christmas gift idea to set a young child on the path to being aware of the plight of others and lend a helping hand.
Buy it now at http://cleanwaterforelirose.com.
For how much you ask? Well the pricing is a Pay-What-You-Can model to bring maximum awareness to this important issue. It starts at just $3 including shipping!! (Yes ladies and gentlemen, two exclamation points, it's that exciting). Book sales are all donated so maybe you could do better than that but what a great way to educate, right?
