About the Book
Raffi is a shy boy who doesn’t like noisy games and is often teased at school. But when he gets the idea of making a scarf for his dad’s birthday, he is full of enthusiasm even though the other children think it is girly to knit. Then the day draws near for the school pageant, and there is one big problem: no costume for the prince. And that’s when Raffi has his most brilliant idea of all — to make a prince’s cape. On the day of the pageant, Raffi’s cape is the star of the show.
My Take on the Book
When I read this book, my first thought was parents and teachers need to read this story to their children/students. Not just read it, but have an honest and sensitive discussion about individual differences and gifts that people develop in their life.
Raffi is allowed to develop his gifts. He knits and sews and is very good . He is courageous under the pressure from his peers and humble with the congratulations he receives from them too at the end of the story when they acknowledge his talents.
My thought is we need to share and discuss books like this more often with our children. Such a great message for adults and children.
