My son is 6 and with a Mom who is a Blogger, he does not know what it is like to go without. I have actually had to back it up a bit as he is wanting more and more and does not appreciate the things he has. When I show him or talk to him about what others don’t have, he is empathetic so I just need to teach him to turn his greed and neediness into feeling fortunate. Then I was approached to review Maddi’s Fridge, a children’s book that address child hunger, and I could not resist!
Maddi and Sofia are best friends and they do everything together. While playing near Maddi’s house, Sofia gets hungry and races to Maddi’s place to open the fridge and discovers only milk that Maddi wants to save for her little brother. Sofia remains bothered by this later on and struggles by not saying anything to her Mom to help Maddi’s family because Maddi asked Sofia to not tell anyone! Eventually, Sofia realizes she wants to help Maddie but can’t do it alone so she tells her Mom. When Sofia and her family show up to Maddi’s with food for her family, does Maddi forgive Sofia for telling?
Author: Lois Brandt is a children’s fiction writer. She writes this first child hunger book for children as she found herself in Sofia’s position as a child when a friend of hers faced low income and hunger.
This is a great book for any age that not only starts that discussion about child hunger with your kids, but 10% of this book’s profits goes to fight child hunger!
