When I opened this book, I found myself inclined to shut it and walk away, one of the books I would never read again. My mom on the other hand, had a completely different mindset on the book and convinced me to read at least a chapter. So here I am, reading it for what may be the 50th time, and I have to say this is a superb book with the power to change minds and hearts. It tells us about how many children in the world are deprived of basic amenities such as education due to their families economical state as well as teaching us about how one act of kindness can go a long way. It really does change the way you see the world.
