Ellie loves to visit Aunt Miranda, the best cook in the world! In this lovely book, after a good breakfast, the little girl and her aunt encounter a variety of animals who are hungry too — birds, caterpillars, homeless cats. They even learn that some children don’t have enough when they meet someone who is collecting money to help such boys and girls. At each encounter, they see a way to help. The illustrations are colorful and attractive and add much to the story. Also, the last page includes information about how the reader can help, with a number of websites listed where one can learn more.

Christian Impact

There is no specific Christian language, but the concept — caring for those less fortunate, and for God’s creation — is the focus of this book and that is, of course, a Biblical concept.
