    Book Review

Reviewed by Diana Lopez for Readers' Favorite

Our experiences define us, but we should not cling to negative events because we could miss other more pleasant experiences. There are times when we feel sad and just want to be able to share our pain to overcome it. Some situations can be more complicated than others, but if we have help, we can replace that sadness with companionship, love, and happiness. Yes, I See You explains this. The protagonist is Elu, a kind girl who shows generosity when interacting with others. She can feel other people's emotions and gives them the courage to continue. Jodi Dee shares a story of kindness, which is a basic quality for the development of social skills in children that helps them to create healthy and satisfying relationships.

Teaching a child to be kind and empathetic is important because that is key to their current and future well-being. We live in a society where interacting properly with other people allows us to create groups that function well. I enjoyed Yes, I See You because if children learn to be kind, they will be able to relate to others and will understand affection and respect. When we teach a child to be kind, we are helping to improve self-esteem, self-confidence, and how to integrate into groups. I liked Jodi Dee’s story development because it explores many situations with explanations for each case. This allows us to appreciate the message with empathy.
