Red City Review – 4 Stars
Great book!! I bought this book in honor of Lillian Angeline Kerrigan-Leyh to whom the book is dedicated. I wasn’t sure what to expect. After reading it I want to order one for everyone I know who has grandchildren! I can’t wait for my granddaughter to read it. It is such a nice story about being nice not judging people by how they look but get to know them first. I would highly recommend it! – Amazon Verified Buyer
