After watching the news, a young girl is scared of all that she sees and wonders what she can do to help make the world a better place. Her wise papa beckons “Come with me” and together they venture out into the city where they take the subway and have a chance to be kind to strangers. When the news is still negative she approaches mom who also invites her to “come with me” and they head to the local grocer where they see families of all kinds shopping for supper. Wanting to do even more the girl goes out on her own (and her parents, showing continued and extended braveness, allow her to go) and makes some friends along the way which finally allays her fears and ends up changing the world.
This is a simple, yet beautiful tale of a young girl (and her parents) learning to be brave and making a difference even when it seems like the problems are insurmountable.
