“I LOVE THIS BOOK! I think it is a beautiful story for preschoolers and young children. The artwork IS ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. Illustrator does a great job of setting the environment for the story & It made the story really come to life. Its a positive and easy to follow story for young children as Jedlie has used the simple & fun language to make it more entertaining and engaging to young kids.” – Five Star Amazon Review
This wonderful and fun story has been a highlight of Jedlie’s live show for many years. This brand new, bilingual English/Spanish print version of that skit is a wonderful way to remind kids that we have a responsibility to respond when we see someone in need.
In addition to this fun story the book also features coloring pages, a maze and a challenge that will have kids thinking of ways they can help others. This is a great way to empower kids to understand they matter and can make a difference in the world.
