This book shows how a young girl can make a difference. Kageni helps the animals near her village and invites a lonely woman to become part of their village family. I like how she cares for both animals and people. Even though I cannot read the words, the illustrations tell the story beautifully.

I like how the child in this story helps her village become colorful once again. Tamari is very lazy at the beginning of the story, but with the help of some kind bees she learns the value of working hard. There are days I would like those bees to visit my household!
