I believe passionately in the importance of teaching my children to understand love and to show compassion for others and to appreciate the importance of compromise. I value these traits very highly and believe it will make my children better people if they understand them too.
Sometimes a book comes along that makes this complex range of emotional understanding so much easier to explain. Sardines of Love by Zuriñe Aguirre is one of those unexpectedly lovely books that popped through my letter box the other day. Both my husband and I fell in love with it instantly. And it’s quite rare for us both to enjoy the same book, but this one ticks all those boxes for us.
Grandmother Lola really doesn’t like sardines, but Grandfather Lolo loves them and he eats them every day.
Lola runs out of sardines one day and can’t bear to think of Lolo going hungry. So she decides to go fishing for some, but things generic flomax canada don’t go exactly to plan. Lola finds herself in a situation where sardines are the only food on offer-what will she do? And what will Lolo do when he discovers his beloved Lola is missing?
Sardines of Love is a beautifully illustrated story, telling us about the power of love and the importance of compromise. It does so through beautiful illustrations and well chosen words.
I highly recommend it, not least because it is simply a lovely story. But also because of it’s subject and tone-any book that speaks of love and compromise as well as sardines has to be a winner for me! Plus, it has grandparents as the main characters-a nice twist.
