The Little Helper by Sandra Asante is an adorable story with an equally adorable concept about a little girl helping those around her by getting actively involved in the community. She and her mom volunteer at the church and throughout their neighborhood and show people they care. They give the needy food and her dad drives them to the senior home to deliver groceries. The little girl and her mom plant flowers for their neighbors. They bake cookies for the bake sale at her big sister's school. Her mom calls her the Little Helper and she finds it fun and easy to volunteer to help others.
The concept is wonderful and will encourage readers to get involved in their community and do voluntary service to help the needy and senior citizens. The illustrations give clarity to the author's words and make the concept tangible. The Little Helper in the story is a good example of how children should be encouraged to accompany their parents while they are doing service in the community and also encouraged to be actively involved in their community activities. The Little Helper by Sandra Asante is a good book for both tutors and parents to use for storytelling sessions to get children actively involved in social work and community service. It is an inspiring book and can also be bought as gifts. Books like this are good for children to motivate them to engage in good and positive activities so that their community and society are a better place to live.
