I am a third grade teacher and picked this book up without any prior knowledge about it. I pre-read it for my class and finished it in one night. I couldn’t put it down. The kids will love to learn facts about the animals as they read and kids love any book about adventure and animals but this particular book is so much more than that face value. It teaches the kids life lessons but in a relatable way where they would want to pay attention and adopt the same values. I took so much from it so adults reading it to children will enjoy it just the same. A wonderfully written book with multiple great messages.
