What I loved most beside the wonderful message was the illustrations. They are frame worthy!
Teaching behavioral skills can be difficult at times. So having a book to help in that process is a great way to teach children through example. The Judgmental Flower by Julia Cook is a great way to discuss the topic of judgmental behaviors.
