“You have your food. When this is over with, you go to bed. Your days – what more could you ask for? That’s it.” (Morton 15).
I really like this quote from the book (that went a lot deeper than just a normal picture book – hence the title of this post) because I think oftentimes we forget how much privilege we are actually given and how lucky we are that we have more than the basic necessities. The quote is talking about how you really only need food, water, and shelter. He makes the reader think about everything they have – all the clothes, accessories, materialistic problems. It kind of puts everything into perspective.
