A story with an important message:

Regardless of what happens in our lives,
deep down we never stop being ourselves.

 "It is an endearing story with a beautiful concept
and a profound message for readers."

Tips for adults:  helping children get the most out of the story

- Read the story together with children, when unhurried

- Learn Santos' favorite rhyme together;  it's a soothing rhyme that can help when times are tough

- Sing Santos' reassuring song

- Help children get a special, smooth red stone of their very own;  it will hold special meaning from the story.  (Red Jaspers may be easy to access;  they are generally low-priced stones that come in different shapes and sizes)
