The Can Man

By HapaMama

The Can Man is a tale of compassion, thankfulness, and how easily one’s circumstances could change.

Aimed at second or third grade reading level, this picture book is a great way to start discussions among elementary school aged-kids…The story is presents homelessness and unemployment in a very frank way, balanced with a hopeful — yet decidedly non-treacly — message about generosity.

The Can Man is definitely a book to share with your kids as we head toward Thanksgiving.
