This is an endearing story of an Aboriginal foster child who receives a special gift from his foster mother. Her gift of warmth and thoughtfulness helps her young foster children by encouraging self-esteem, acceptance and love.
Similar to Rober Munsch's classic children's story Love You Forever, this book will pull your heartstrings. It's written for children of any background with a positive message of unconditional love. You will feel warmed after reading this story, as if slipping into a cozy pair of moccasins.
