Description from the publisher:
Salem had a brother, sisters, a new bicycle, toys, books and even a computer. But something always seemed to be missing from his life, despite all of the material things he had.
But things take an interesting turn when Salem, against his will, becomes a palm tree then a stone and finally, a rose! It is after these eye-opening experiences that Salem finally awakens to the beauty and wonder of being a human being and how much he has to be thankful for.
This is a very good story to teach children the importance of gratefulness and contentment.
