The story is short and spare, but young kids will love the charmingly cuddly characters, the simplicity of the argument, and the drama the words and text add to the ink-and-watercolor drawings. Parents will have fun reading the book with their kids and discussing its important lesson about how we each see the world from our individual -- and changing -- perspectives. Consider it an early toddler lesson on the theory of relativity, one that definitely will inspire plenty of discussion.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
