"Abe's Lucky Day.  Any day could be your lucky day.  Story description:  Abe is a homeless man who lives in the alley behind a bakery and winter is coming.  What will happen on his lucky day that could change his life forever?" (from the back cover)

My Review:  Abe is a kind-hearted homeless man who has a lucky day.  He continues to come across blessings which he pays forward.  Will he be rewarded for his kindness?

A children's book about homelessness, Abe's Lucky Day, is a rare find and Jill Warren puts a warm spin on the tragic life of a homeless man, showing him in a new light as a man with genuine heart who is down on his luck.  Surprisingly, though Abe has needs of his own, he gives that which he could use to benefit another, putting a touching spin on his story.  

Awareness is the first step for positive change.  Our children will inherit this society and perhaps early awareness will affect positive changes for all society.  This book can be one of the first steps in the right direction.  

Illustrations are colourful and beautifully rendered by Kalpart.  

Rated:  4/5
