Doing what is right is not always easy. However, if we learn this as children, it will be much easier to do so in the future. You do the right thing when you tell your classmates not to write on the wall with a marker, comfort a sad little girl, and admit that you are the one who broke the pencil sharpener. These are just a few actions that the little protagonist of Mommy I Have a Friend Who Once Walked On Water by David Kennedy tells her mother. Her short stories, set during school hours, are delightful and instructive (the last one tells of her friend Jesus) and teach children to do the right thing and take responsibility, even if sometimes one tries to avoid it.
Mommy I Have a Friend Who Once Walked On Water is a special book every child should read. David Kennedy teaches his young readers values like knowing how to do the right thing even when, sometimes, it is easier to ignore it. The examples that he gives through the narration of his young protagonist refer to things that happen very often in everyday life and are easily understandable by every child. It is also important to stress the Christian principles of Kennedy's book because of the explicit reference to Jesus. It is only in this way that the context of Mommy I Have a Friend Who Once Walked On Water becomes truly clear. I recommend that all children read (and reread often) this beautiful story.
