[Reviews and Comments]
Filled with splendid illustrations and inspirational ideas for children, this heartwarming true story will give children a real understanding of the feelings that come from giving.

When six-year-old Amanda wanted to help her teacher who had a problem, she wondered what could she do? She thought of great ideas like making holiday decorations, baking cookies, and entering a contest. Through Amanda's efforts to help her teacher, she discovered that helping someone else gave her the best feeling that she had ever, ever had. It was better than eating a big chocolate sundae, better than opening up all the presents at her birthday party, and it was even better than the day she got her new, wet-nosed puppy!

Children will treasure this heartwarming true story that shares the magical feeling that comes from helping others.
