What a beautiful story and metaphor for life with children. They will tell us what they will become, not the other way around.

I bought this book for a Chinese child who was adopted by a family in the United States. The tale is lovely and the illustrations are outstanding. The book was a real hit with the little girl I bought it for, her parents, and her grandparents.

I used to read this book to my kids when they were young and now I'm buying this book for friends who have young children. This is a fun book to read to your kids. The entire family will enjoy the story and beautifully illustrated pictures. This story reminds the adults and teaches our kids to be true to our conscience and not give in to pressure even if it means risking our lives. I highly recommend this book.
