I Saw Pete and Pete Saw Me
by Maggie Hutchings and Evie Barrow
When you are small
you can see
are too busy
to notice . . .
Everyone walks right past Pete – except for one little boy. He sees Pete’s big smile and bright drawings, and they make a connection. The boy can’t give Pete a home, but when Pete gets sick, he can show he cares.
A heartfelt, moving story about the importance of really seeing the world around us and the power in tiny acts of kindness.
