how to have empathy for another being by trying to see from someone else's point of view. As well, children would learn that although we are not all the same, we can still develop deep, meaningful connections with each other.

On a personal note, my family experienced a house fire when I was a teenager- and this book was one of the very few items I pulled from the rubble, as I could not part with it, regardless of the charred and water-damaged pages.
