Absolutely beautiful picture book with gorgeous paintings and a wonderful story that’s not only good for learning but also positive and encouraging. I love that this story connects us instantly to another culture and as loving EQUALS. “Big or small there’s a difference only YOU can make”, that message is loud and clear here in a loving way.❤️

My four year old loved it. It showed how a little girl could make a big difference and beat those old mean coyotes.

My 8-year-old (and I) really enjoyed this story. The illustrations were also beautiful.
