This book is so cute, simple, and powerful! Only downside, I wish I wrote it myself.
Was reading this at #nerdcampMI and in the middle of reading it a teacher turned around to tell me that the boys in Thailand had all gotten out of the cave; I was reminded that there is potential for good in this world.
