My son and I love to go to the library. It’s in walking distance but we drive due to the heat these days…Lazies…We know.
Today, he did the most peculiar thing or not! He picked up a book on food! He is a picky eater, and I was too. But we both love tasty foods. To back up a little, I say peculiar because my upcoming book is a cookbook! I pray it can be of use to him insha’Allah when he grows up, aameen. I also pray Ivorian students find it useful. Please make dua for us so that the book also be sadaqah juwayriyah, allahumma aameen!
Anyway, Eat, Leo! Eat! is a fun and smart story where Leo always hides when it’s time to eat. To make him eat, his Nonna started telling him a tale with multiple parts to it. She stops at a cliffhanger and prods the boy to eat. And he does. His hunger of stories led him to be hungry for food. What a smart grandma!
Children are the best business people you will ever meet! You always have to give them something in exchange for a good behavior until they start doing it on their own. At least my son and Leo are!
For the rest of the books we picked together, while all don’t have the best of illustrations, the creativity is on point, and the quality of the books are great.
Thank you for reading,
