Brilliant, but please change the rating!
The poem and artwork are both stunning.
I have 2 children aged 5 & 8. We love looking at apps together & this one interested me due to the anti-bullying theme. I saw that it was rated 4+ so I bought it.
I first watched it with my son & we didn't get very far through it before I stopped it, said it wasn't a very cheery story & asked him to go & choose another book.
The poem, artwork and app have a very important message to get across but suicide, depression & related medicine are not suitable themes for young children unless they have maybe had to deal with those situations already?
I have struggled with Depression myself & take medication which I am grateful for. I want to teach my kids to deal with bullying etc well. To help them build a strong, caring character. I don't feel that the best way to do that is to show them the worst case scenarios at a young age.
My dad showed this too me to explain bullying. very interesting.i recommend showing this to your children to help them understand what to do if u r being bullied
A truly inspiring piece
Absolutely touching and gorgeous the animation, the text, the emotion and the music all a perfect blend of inspiration. A piece that will strike deep down into your core.
