Best friends from different cultures enjoy different foods
Reviewed in the United States on December 15, 2017
Mo Willems does a great job addressing children's feelings, relationships and dilemmas from their perspective. (In this case, Piggy's love of slop. Gerald doesn't like the way slop smells or looks. Piggy wants her best friend Gerald to try it. He sees what a special food slop is to Piggy. What will Gerald do? ) These are acknowledged and validated while Gerald and Piggy sort things out and come to a satisfactory solution. Enables discussions on many age appropriate levels. The graphics and/or story appeals to my grandchildren aged 18 months to 5 years. My 11 year old granddaughter enjoys reading them to siblings and cousins. However, our discussions on a more nuanced and insightful level.
