A quirky kid donates her beloved panda sweater, and through this act of sacrifice gains a new friend. With whimsical, contemporary artwork, this story balances the topic of selflessness with humor and heart, while also offering an opportunity to talk about bullying, sharing and self-confidence.
So touching, and a wonderful conversation starter to talk about a host of things—bullying, donating things we don't use anymore to help others, kindness and more. While it lightly touches on some deeper issues, it's at a level that's great for kids/
