Promise to care!
Sophia and Maddie are besties. They play every day in the nearby park and love their time together. Then, one day, when the friends get hungry, Sophie visits Maddie’s house to realize that she has an almost empty fridge. Maddie asks Sophia to promise not to talk about it to anyone. That dinner, Sophia keeps thinking about her fully stocked vs. Maddie’s empty one. Finally, she gets an idea and packs some fish for Maddie. Unfortunately, the friends find rotten fish in the backpack the next day. Sophia tried with an egg, resulting in the same. But did Sophia give any palatable food to Maddie?
We picked this book for its blurb. Hunger is a serious issue; ten percent of the world’s population stays hungry daily. Making children aware of this is crucial. And this book fulfills it through the heartwarming story of Sophia and Maddie that children can easily comprehend. In addition, the illustrations are fun and vibrant.
Maddi’s Fridge by Lois Brandt is a delightfully illustrated, must-read story of friendship and compassion that can help begin a classroom conversation on hunger and food waste.
