During these strange times of social distancing and home isolation it is more important than ever to teach children about kindness, community and caring for those who could use a smile. This sweet EK Books release by Australian author Vikki Conley has all the good stuff covered:
In Ella & Mrs Gooseberry (RRP $24.99) we meet the lovely Ella and her grumpy neighbour called, you guessed it, Mrs. Gooseberry. When Ella asks her mother why Mrs. Gooseberry is always sad and grumpy, mum says it is because she has lost love. But how do you lose love, and more importantly, how do you find it again?
Ella decides that to find something that is lost, you first need to know what it looks like, so she sets off to find out what love looks like. From her mum to her teacher, from her grandma to her dance instructor, everyone has different ways to describe love. Will Mrs. Gooseberry, with Ella’s help, be able to find love again? There may not be one straight answer to Ella’s question, but in this case it is packaged in a brown box…
You can find ‘Ella & Mrs Gooseberry’ in leading book stores across Australia.
