Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 6-year old daughter's favorite Zoe says "it's a good book. Really, really good book. It makes me feel really, really happy." The book relays the message that even though sad things do happen, something good may come of it. There is always something good right around the corner. Very positive and uplifting. Highly recommend it.
