This story will open many discussions on how one can show caring action of kindness, many times when others don't.
It would be a nice addition to classrooms and counselor visits on the elementary school level.
I LOVE THIS BOOK! I think it is a beautiful story for preschoolers and young children. The artwork IS ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. Illustrator does a great job of setting the environment for the story & It made the story really come to life. Its a positive and easy to follow story for young children as Jedlie has used the simple & fun language to make it more entertaining and engaging to young kids. Why I also love this book so much is it gives a wonderful message of transforming feelings of caring into action to help others in need. This would be a great addition to any family library and would make a great bed time story. A really fun picture book!
As a former teacher, I LOVE the activities and coloring pages at the end of the book. What better way to engage children and encourage their creative abilities!

My 5 year old loved reading it with me and we both laughed out loud at some of the Great Maritini's exploits.
The book also ends with a message to kids to help others whenever they can which is explained well.
Bright, colorful illustrations throughout the book and activities for kids after the story - what's not to like?
