This book is so simple yet so brilliant! I so appreciate books that encourage a child's creativity, imagination, and ability to think outside the box, and books that allow a child to take a simple idea and run with it
Our 4 and 5 year old children love this book, and we've done our own activities using the delightful idea of one line becoming something else or discovering what it can do. You could use a pipe cleaner, string, or just a pencil and paper and really have fun with the concept of the book.
This book comes with our highest recommendation!!! It's a favorite for our children, and a favorite for US as well!

It's unfortunate to hear harsh criticisms for a great book. Thanks, Todd Parr, for another delightful book!!!
I don't think the book paints a victim-savior picture at all. I think it presents a good, simple picture of adoption. Parents have LOVE to give, children have needs that can be lovingly met, and there is a reciprocal relationship between parents and their children where both are very blessed!!! The words and illustrations in this book give a great picture of that reciprocal relationship. All the parents have big smiles as they are shown doing things with their child which is one simple way this book shows that parents are very blessed by their children!
