Written with psychotherapist Rachel Harris, this book is, like the poem, both inspirational and practical, and resonates with readers through its clarity. Each of the 19 couplets of the poem is developed into a chapter - on jealousy, shame, praise, recognition, honesty, fairness, tolerance, and more - and offers a clear, constructive perspective on teaching its moral lesson. Illustrations.
