Synopsis: Dekel's book is about a little girl who feels that no one likes her. No one will give her the time of day or pay any attention to her. When she tries to show her dance moves to her mommy, she is busy. When she shows her painting to her teacher, she doesn't pay attention to her. When she wants to play a game with her friends, they say that she has to wait her turn. Because of these experiences, and others, she felt so alone and unloved. Will her Mom and Dad be able to convince her that she is indeed loved by everyone?
Overall Thoughts: This is a wonderful book with a great message for young kids. Many kids feel that no one is paying attention to them. And because of this, their self-esteem suffers and they feel unloved and sometimes even isolated. This book has a strong message. Dekel shows that all kids are loved and special in their own unique way.
This book should be read by kids who feel a bit out of place in their family and school. Many kids will be able to relate to this story. Dekel's message in this book is very uplifting and comforting indeed.
