Pequena biografia
"When asked about landing on a banned book list, Caldecott Medal-winning illustrator Marla Frazee told The Washington Post, “To be honest, I don't know that I've ever been on a list with Toni Morrison before, or Judy Blume—I mean the people on this list, I'm thrilled to be on any list with these people!” And it's no secret that books on banned lists tend to be sought out and given even more attention."

I saw another reviewer say that kids will like this, but adults won't. I'm happy to say that she's wrong...I loved the simplicity of this, and the way that Frazee depicted friendship and childhood.

From School Library Journal: "Simultaneously simple and majestic, this benediction of a book is recommended for first purchase."

Inspired by a Jewish blessing (but not overtly religious), this text celebrates the beauty of life, sorrows and all. Frazee is one of my favorite illustrators, and this gorgeous book doesn't disappoint.

This would be a great book for Primary or Intermediate Readers
This book is about the many different experiences that occur in life, and how beautiful and real life is.
This would be a great book to read aloud or to have in a classroom library, especially if the readers are young because there are beautiful illustrations that tell the bulk of the story.
