    " Teaches about real life situations; community help and service; family love and honor; sharing; work & industry; overcoming trials; enjoying simple things in life -- like a comfy chair to sit in at the end of a long day. "

    " At first sight I didn't think I would care for this book, but after reading it I really enjoyed it. I think the story line is great, a little girl saves up her change to help buy her mom a chair. The girl is very considered and was willing to spend her money on her mother. Unlike some kids when they get money it burns a hole in their pocket. I think this good would be good if trying to teach a life lesson. "
