Propaganda

Nothing for free is ever free, thanks for reminding me. "up to date with my shots".... equals health apparently.

Disappointed

This book is not inspiring or uplifting full of disappointment.
I had to explain ableism in one story, feminism in another. Toxic masculinity with boy saves girl. The story’s had some merit as lived experiences but were in extreme need for an update on presenting them.
The book outlines some yay for being a girl , oh it’s so hard to be a girl. It’s overly thick with it.
I’m usually very impressed with chicken soup books in past.

Book delivery is a melodic older female American voice. It has a calm aspect but it also plays victim whiny card. I think it could have been more powerful in a straight less acted delivery.
This book will also suit some people.
Try the sample first.
If you like sample your going to like book.

needs boy/girl narration

it is a beautiful book with inspiring stories. however the narration was very confusing for my 2 sons to listen to; they didn't know if it was a boy or girl's story until the end. they usually thought the story about about a girl because a girl was speaking. this is disappointing because they would have got more out of it if they realised that the stories are by both boys and girls .
for kids, it would be better if the stores were narrated by 2 authors so kids can relate better.

I love it

My dad bought me this and I love it .I don't like how the narrator what's so slow . I recommend this for the parent's that children are ungrateful to listen to in the car. I rate it this because it's a great story for children.

Six Stars if I Could Have Rated it this High

The book had some sad parts and some awesome parts and it taught me no matter what you should help people and do the right thing. I would recommend this book to E (rating from video games which stands for Everyone.)
