What a short, beautiful and poignant little story! Bought 2 copies, one for my kids and one to give to their Sunday School class. The message of loving our neighbor and treating them the way we ourselves would want to be treated is significant and movingly portrayed in this story. Wonderful to read with children on your lap or at your feet, cuddled under a warm blanket by a cozy fire to remind ourselves just how lucky and truly blessed we really are. A story that can really help plant the seed in children to practice random acts of kindness on their fellow man. A classic, and a family tradition-to-become in our home.
