Waiter, There’s A Bigot In My Soup!


Don’t you just hate it when you find a bigot in your soup? Eeeeuw! Gross!

This is exactly what happens to John Q. Public one day as he sits down to enjoy a fresh bowl of soup at his favorite restaurant! He puts his hand up to complain, but unfortunately the waiter doesn’t believe him – and as his protests increase, so does the intensity of the waiter’s denials!

What will happen to John? Will he get fresh soup – fresh soup without a bigot in it? More

A Unique & Different Approach To Child Bullying: “Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You”


I was so pleased to see this review of “Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You” yesterday! 🙂

Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You” by Christina Engela celebrates the concept of diversity and how precious every child is.

This book is about intolerance, diversity, and bullying and encourages readers to accept everyone, irrespective of their differences based on gender, race, and color. The book also emphasizes being compassionate to everyone, regardless of their color, status, and gender.

Bullying and intolerance are relevant topics in today’s times and this book is good for read-aloud sessions in classrooms to help children be more tolerant and compassionate towards others. The illustrations lend clarity to the concept and help readers connect with the author’s words.

The author’s approach to the subject is unique and different, and she makes the book appealing to children with the help of colorful illustrations. It is a good book to teach children to be kind and compassionate. 5 stars” – Mamta Madhavan for Readers’ Favorite, Oct 17, 2019
