Back of Book:
Alfonzo couldn’t be happier. He just got an amazing new coat, and he feels like a million dollars. But when he discovers some creatures in need of help, will Alfonzo be able to give up his treasured possession to save the day?
This great big hug of a book shows that kindness is definitely the best recipe.
My Review:
I received a copy of this book from Bloomsbury Children’s books in exchange for an honest review. This is a touching story about Alfonzo the goat and his kindness to his friends. As Alfonzo wants through the woods he encounters many of his friends with troubles in the woods. He gives each of his friends a piece of the coat to help them. At the end of the story, his friends come together and repay his kindness. The book is told with a fun and upbeat rhyming scheme that will keep readers engaged throughout the book. The themes of kindness and friendship are perfectly tied into the story. The illustrations are bright and full of color. This is a fantastic book to share in the classroom about the importance of always being kind to others.
