About the book...

This sweet story is about a little girl named Sarah who has compassion in her heart and reaches out to an ostracized little monster that who attends her school.  He is shunned by all the other students.  He is not accepted in any of their activities or to play games with them at recess. The poor little guy is reduced to tears as he feels left out and lonely.  Isn't there anyone who can accept him as he is he wonders?  

Along comes Sarah who offers to sit with him in the lunchroom where he usually eats all by himself every day.  He happily accepts her invitation and a friendship blossoms.  From there the story escalates to them swinging together, skipping together and playing games together.  The little monster's tears disappear and a huge smile of happiness replaces them. He is finally accepted someone.  Oh happy day! 

This is  perfect first-reader book and the simple storyline and illustrations are sure to be a hit with the very young.  It teaches that reaching out and befriending someone who is different than you can enrich both your life and his.  Group hug everyone.   The message is inspiring.
