by Ziba Forooghian (Author), Farzin Forooghian (Author), Meriette Medina (Illustrator)
"The Squeaky Wheel: A Story About Learning To Be Grateful" is a great story that teaches us about being thankful and thinking of others. Squeaks is a wheel who lives on a fancy car with his family. They have a good life, but Squeaks doesn't always realize how lucky he is. He complains about things like the weather being too cold or too hot. Then, one day, the car's owners think something is wrong with Squeaks because he is always complaining, so they take him to a junkyard.
In the junkyard, Squeaks meets other tires who have been through a lot. They have nails stuck in them, or they've been melted, and some even got set on fire! Listening to their stories, Squeaks starts to see how much he has to be thankful for. Eventually, he gets turned into part of a fun playground for children.
This book is not only fun to read, but it also helps us learn about thinking of others and being grateful for what we have. The pictures in the book are bright and funny, which makes it even more enjoyable. And guess what? The money from the book helps kids at the BC Children’s Hospital, so when we read it, we're also helping other kids!
