Reviews

"This picture book acknowledges economic realities within a story that is wholly positive. The characters' emotions are sensitively portrayed in the colorful illustrations. An appealing readaloud choice for primary-grade social studies units on wants and needs." --Booklist

"With a lesson of putting other's needs before one's own desires, Paulson's narrative is community-focused and stresses the importance of charity in a supportive--but never patronizing--way. Mola's painterly and rustic-looking art fits the 'thrifted' theme of the story. . . . A warmhearted tribute to the spirit of altruism." --Kirkus Reviews

"A fun and engaging picture book with an important underlying message about having enough and helping others in need." --Midwest Book Review
