At the heart of the story is the selflessness displayed by boyfriend and girlfriend bears Boris and Stella. It called to mind a phrase from a book I once read as a young teenager. "Life's greatest possessions, are those which when shared, multiply; those which when divided are not diminished." I think if children can learn that concept--if all humans could learn and manifest that concept, our world would be ever so much more peaceful and harmonious. This beautifully illustrated book, eloquently exemplifies that concept. Thank you Ms. Goldman for contributing to the increase of kindness and giving in the world!
I bought a few of the book at one time, knowing that I can give this to friends over the holidays who have kids, regardless of religion because the message so clearly is about inclusion and acceptance.
It is the perfect gift for any child really because this book is not really about holidays, or gifts or religion.
This is a book about Love. One of the most touching children books I have ever read, enhanced by richly
colored and drawn illustrations that often speak louder than the words on the page. This book is a keeper,
to pass down for generations to come!
