The Big Red Lollipop

I've posted about We Give Books before, but I have to mention it again (we love the free library, easy read site that it is) because I especially love this book.  Honestly, I get teary towards the end every time.... Such a Sweet Story!

Beautiful illustrations.  A very regular mom who's trying her best and missing the mark a bit (I can identify well) and cross-cultural complexities that endear me to her too.  Best of all, I love the sisters in the story... how they learn and love, forgive, grow, and come together.

Click the image to go straight to the book... but if you haven't already, you'll need to sign up so that when you've finished reading the book, you can "give a book" to the charity of your choice.
