Ironically, the day I received this book, I had just mentioned to a friend, how I wished it would be possible to take my children to a third world country and how I felt it would help them become a little more grateful.
As I read this book, so much resonated with me. I grew up on the mission field, so I have seen true poverty. It makes me sad when my children, and I even catch myself at times, complain about not having enough, when we are truly so blessed.
This story is told beautifully and the illustrations are bold and eye catching. I loved it. I loved the description of the homes – the hungry ranch house and the marvelous hut. And the song that George’s mom sang was so pretty. I made up my own little tune to it as I read. It teaches the importance of being grateful and using what God has given us – whether time, talent, or things to help others. It’s eye-opening!
This is a story that should be read in all homes. I highly recommend it. I can’t wait to read it to my kids. Thanksgiving and Christmas are the perfect seasons for reading this.
