REVIEW ~ Lisa Moon Shine Art Spot
First of all I completely love the illustrations in this wonderfully colorful and expressive children's book. A clever lesson is disguised here to introduce children to new cultures & new cultural meals. It is always amazing when a child can learn about their world through new people and new experiences.
I loved the fact that the main character became more open minded to his responsibilities as well
as already having friends who were multicultural to begin with. More books as wonderfully illustrated and fun as this read will hopefully keep children's minds open to the wonderful benefits of being friends with many kinds of people & aware of the lessons (even food lessons) that these friendships can bring into their lives. Associating with people & not judging them by their culture can help everyone to have very enriching experiences in life.
I was provided a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review and I loved it's open hearted message and it's expressive & fun illustrations.
