Nicky Mittens dreams of growing fruit in his backyard to help feed millions of people who often do not have enough food. When he hears his sister’s tummy growling, he takes her to the berry bush only to find all the berries gone. Someone has eaten all the berries. Who could the berry thief be, and why did they eat his berries? Nicky and his sister, Chloe, spend the night in their treehouse to find out who the thief is. Help your child learn about hunger and that being poor and needy does not mean the person is bad. After feeding the magic unicorn, discover who helps Nicky and Chloe grow more fruit and berries to feed other hungry animals.
If you want to teach your children about having compassion for others, then Nicky Mittens and the Hungry Unicorn by John Marsella is the book for you. In this story filled with rhyming and fun-to-read sentences, John helps children understand the importance of not judging someone’s character before they get to know the person. Using animals to illustrate this principle keeps your child’s interest, and they will learn the importance of helping others. People experiencing poverty are often misunderstood, so reading this book will help your child understand that sometimes others need a little help. Helping others is also a great way to make new friends who will be supportive as you continue to help others. If you want to see miracles, teach your child to love others.
