The images were beautiful too!
The only downside was that it was a little complicated reading-level-wise for my kids. I had to simplify some of the worlds and work a bit harder at making it exciting
This is an inspiring story based on a true character that if you start small and dream big, you never know where it can take it.
What I really liked about this story is how it teaches you to give back to the community and the principle of micro finance. The central character uses uses his wealth and knowledge to help other people in his community improve their lives and acquire their own wealth. It also teaches the value of paying it forward. Those who received help from him are made to promise that they will extend help to someone else. People are not greedy and selfish nor are they fearful that by sharing, they will have less for themselves.
I think it's a good reminder that we should not be afraid to share because instead of being shortchanged, we actually gain more in return.
This is a great book for both children and adults!
