    Too strong of a moral message the illustrations are good, but overall, not a standout

    Charming but a bit too heavy handed.

    Story of a sad sack grain of sand that turns into a beautiful and beloved pearl and eventually the national jewel of Persia Lush and lovely illustrations, folktale feel, Spanish reads smoothly.

    An excellent book about how you can t always measure your own worth accurately Good for kids with depression, maybe, if they re not so far gone in the mental sickness that they can t receive hopeful messages For instance, from someone who is too far gone, my depression simply tells me, Yeah, but, you know, not you This is for other people Isn t that sweet

    A single grain of sand feels insignificant and unimportant when he compares himself to the vastness of the ocean He feels hopeless when he gets stuck in an oyster What s a grain of sand to do A powerful story that reminds us of our own worth I felt the sand s hopelessness and despair Knowing what happens to sand in an oyster did nothing to dampen the wonder of that event and I love what happens to him as a pearl.
