Review: A beautiful tale of sacrifice and caring. An entire community comes together to help one another and Anna's mother teaches her about how she is more precious than jewels or gold. What would you say to her about all she has done to get you a new coat? I certainly think it's a worthwhile book, and sort of enjoyable, worth 3. But I just can't look at the cover picture of the edition I read and not think about the very high likelihood that those sheep are going to eat the buttons right off the coat - they do that, you know!
