This book is excellent!! The pictures are very bright and correct. Reading this book as an adult made me cry, this man's thankfulness and generosity is so abundant! This man goes through many large hardships in his life but he is still thanks God for the things he has, and is not upset over the things that have happened to him. I definately recommend this book to anyone!
