This was a really adorable children’s novel. They are both given jelly beans and given specific instructions. One follows the rules and the other doesn’t. I read it to my dogs since I don’t have children. They seem to enjoy it. Well as much as they enjoy me reading anyway. I really thought there was a very important lesson to take from this in the end. I fully recommend this book to all children. Especially ones with siblings.
This book really hit home well for me. I loved the way that the four mental health issues are explained. It’s also such an important book. I remember growing up feeling like I was just a major burden on everybody for having the thoughts I did. I remember the well-intended but not helpful advice I was constantly given. I think there should be so much more awareness of this. Mental health is just as important as physical health. I don’t just feel that this book should go to children with mental illness. I feel like all children should read it. If we have more awareness, maybe it will change our thinking. I am so happy I was given this book to read.
