  1. A wonderful story about friendship and not to bully and that it is all right to be different and to be kind to others. It is extremely important.

  2. I like children to read inspirational ‘teaching’ stories because, let’s face it. we learn when we read, why not children as well. They are young and new to world and ripe for bright new ideas. 🙂
