Jealousy is the lesson in this book for me. I remember when I was a child I would get so upset when my mom or dad would give another child attention other than myself. There comes a point in life when you realize that sharing things that make you happy can help someone else. I think it's touching that Sarah learns to accept the Indian boy because she cares about him too, everyone needs a friend sometimes. ( )
