This is a beautifully illustrated and heartfelt story about accepting help when faced with life’s challenges. The lonely toadstool bravely spoke out, shared his story and was heard in the forest. In my life I have had to share some of my own emotions and challenges during difficult times. From these moments I learned that comfort and support can sometimes come from unexpected places when I have allowed myself to be vulnerable and authentic. These are themes I want to share with my grandchildren to aid them as they encounter life’s ups and downs.
