This is such a delightful read. I do believe it is in most school curriculum. If your child is reading it for school, read it with them. Even if you have read it years ago, you’ll realize that you have forgotten a lot of it.
I think the best part about this story is how friendship can stretch across the lines imposed by society and nature. Those who are different can work together and succeed.
If you haven’t read this book in a few years, I recommend you pick up a copy. Add it to your homeschool curriculum.
Note: This book was purchased with my funds with no expectation of a positive review.
