I really liked this book. I love the main character, her teacher, and her parents. I liked her friends. I like the emotions evoked by the different characters. I loved the lesson about being a good friend and subtly teaching that you shouldn't be a bully (tease, demand, make fun of others). I would have liked to see a resolution at the end of the story in the form of character development on the part of Gabbi. The message was If you are mean, you won't have friends. But the message could have been positively spun as, If you become nicer, you will have better results in life. Either way, the story was really well written, lots of dialogue, and the illustrations were absolutely beautiful, active, and aligned to the story. Great job. I recommend for children 2 to 6 years old.
