My Review:
This is a great, great book, but also a very sad book.  Luckily, there is hope for all of the ones in the stories.  There is hope for us all.  This book tells the story of those whose needs are basic and are not being met.  This book made me cry and cry.  It also reminded me that simple actions can make a huge difference in the lives of those around us.  Big actions are needed very often, but little ones can also add up.  God loves all of His children and I imagine that these stories also make Him cry. 
This book is written so that younger children (8+) can also read and be touched by these stories.  I recommend this book to everyone over age 8.  My daughter will be reading it soon, as well.
 
 
I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
