This is an endearing story of a young Aboriginal foster child who is given a special gift by his foster mother. Her gift of warmth and thoughtfulness helps her young foster children by encouraging self-esteem, acceptance and love. Written as a simple story, it speaks of a positive foster experience.

Dave Jenkinson, University of Manitoba
"[A] simple, but evocative, storyline...superbly reinforced by Julie Flett's spare illustrations"
