    This is one of the Serendipity books that I actually based upon the cover and thought I wouldn t like it but instead it has one of the best lessons of any of the Serendipity books ever The words are easy and simple to read for young readers while the pictures will catch the eye And definitely a good one to read the little ones to show them that the world isn t meant for material trophies and awards but for slowing down to small the flowers while collecting the trophies of the world around u This is one of the Serendipity books that I actually based upon the cover and thought I wouldn t like it but instead it has one of the best lessons of any of the Serendipity books ever The words are easy and simple to read for young readers while the pictures will catch the eye And definitely a good one to read the little ones to show them that the world isn t meant for material trophies and awards but for slowing down to small the flowers while collecting the trophies of the world around us

    I like the idea of this one Slow down so you can notice and appreciate the beauty and wonder of the world around you Reminds me a little of the Hare and the Tortoise fable.
