I love the artwork, it's lovely, adorable and helps to bring the story across nicely. The inspirational messages within was easy to understand hence would be great for young children. Even grownups could flip-tru it especially when life gets tough, it would surely help to put things into better perspective and potentially renew hope. With hope, we could try again and again until we succeed. You call the quits now, you fail the moment you stop trying.
I hope my boy has taken Nick's heartfelt messages to heart and start believing in himself. I too should start recognizing my own potential.
Everyone needs a hug or a pat on their backs every now and then. Since it's free why not give it out every chance you get?
I would recommend this book to all parents to share with their kids. Might not be instant life-changing but it is never too early or late to plant the good seed.

"Whether your life is happy or not is your own choice.
Many people think I can't live a normal life because
I don't have arms or legs.
I could choose to believe that and give up trying.
I could stay at home and wait for others to take care of me.Instead, I choose to believe that I can do anything,and I always try to do things my own way.I choose to be happy.I am happy because I am always thankful."
