A beautiful way to emphasize the ripple effects of one tiny act! The illustrations had such a calming effect on me.

A small little action, like picking up pop can, goes a long way!

Little things add up, as this story explains. One little boy does one small thing, but it makes a difference, and each page shows a different way his action had a positive effect. A great way to how children how their actions make a difference, even if they don't realize it, or see the change. For older children (school age) this would be a great classroom read, and open discussions. It can also be used as a prompt for how one action the children do changes their community. Worth reading.
