If you want to have a conversation with a child on being generous, or not so negative, or on looking at the bright side, then this is a book that will bring it down to their level. When others are selfish, gloomy, or hopeless, Nate shows us another option. True, the book doesn’t get at the heart of it—how Nate can be the way he is when others aren’t—but it can help us recognize negative habits and ways of reacting. And seeing the problem is the first step to reform, right? A cute, short story.
