Theme

The theme of this book is to put others before yourself. This happens many times during the book when Lil'T puts others first. This has really impacted me because when I look around everyday, it makes me consider how many people would do that. In the book, Lil'T worked hard for many things, ended up not using what he earned, and gave it to someone who needed it more. In the end, his hard work payed off.
