This picture book breaks my heart, but not entirely in a bad way. Like a good cry, it cleanses the soul in preparation for new action. This is a beautiful story of friendship and empathy and regret. Never didactic. So real. A great choice for a read-aloud to a class of elementary school kids up through about fifth grade. I love picture books for older kids, and this is one of the best.
