Made me cry (the good kind)

This made me cry. I could picture my 7 year old self sitting on the floor of a library aisle reading this, learning that it wasn't my fault that my family bullied me. I feel like my life could've been very different if I'd had this book when I was a child.

Beautiful story, adorable illustrations, poignant message. This book could be a life-changer for so many unfortunate scapegoat kids that have no one to tell them they are lovable, they matter, and they are not at fault. I couldn't recommend it highly enough!

The most profound children's book I've ever read

Although largely silent and invisible, family scapegoating is an extremely cruel and harmful intergenerational issue. Behind the quaintest drawings and sweetest rhymes, the message is powerful and clear: social justice starts at home. This unique book has the potential to change lives - little and big ones. I look forward to seeing this book in many languages ending family bullying everywhere.
