I would definitely recommend this book for young readers. I think that it holds great life lessons. I would also use this book in my classroom. I find that it would be a great tool when learning about accepting your differences, understanding, and the willingness to try something new.
I found the illustrations to be soft, colorful, and very well done. I like that you can tell that they were hand done, they weren't too cartoonish. The soft blending of the colors of each illustration was beautiful. I was eager to get to the next page to see the next drawing.
