Overall, I think that this book would be great to read to a class when discussing class norms and expectations for how to treat one another,

This is a lovely, heart warming book for young children that I would highly recommend!

This is a story about being kind, and it features Indigenous children in it. It's great to see more diversity in children's books, especially with a book that displays it in such a great way.
