    I received this book from a Goodreads giveaway. It is a very darling book. My 8 year old grandson and I read it together. It has a very good moral to feelings for children. It is funny, sad, happy. A wide range of emotions. A very enjoyable read. Thank you Molly Barrow. We really enjoyed reading this book.

    I purchased this book as a gift (check me out shopping early for the holidays). I'm not a parent, but I highly recommend this book to those who are. Malia and Teacup is an honest and inspiring tale for young people. And, if I do say so myself, a great holiday gift idea.

    I thought this was an adorable book with really cute pictures that a child would enjoy! It deals with some emotions and shows how even children could be strong and do the right thing. A nice book to read with your child. I received this book through Good Reads.
