The story is about Katie who really cannot understand her brother, Richard. He seems to have different mannerisms than she does. But Richard always helps her out, regardless of how negative and critical she is of him. Richard never seems to be too put off by her remarks.
But what is more, Richard is always there to help her. He helps her find her bracelet when she loses it, he helps her pick up the blueberries that fall on the floor, and he helps her find the missing letter from her bracelet.
By showing this kind of unconditional love towards Katie, Richard shows how important it is to love your sibling, regardless of how different they seem.
This is a story about trust, unconditional love, and family. It is a wholesome story that may encourage families to make pancakes and enjoy them as a family, without bickering and complaining too much.
In the end, Katie discovers that despite their differences, she truly loves Richard and she accepts him and loves him just as he is.
I loved this story and I will be passing it along to the children in my midst.
