A gentle and beautifully illustrated journey of magic and friendship, this is a book that I have returned to time and again during this tumultuous year. In this cute and inclusive fantasy, two very different girls are taught to care for rare and delicate tea dragons while learning about acceptance and kindness. I can't recommend this book enough for quiet children who feel like they don't quite fit in. – Jessica
