Friends in Wonderland
Written and Illustrated by Loucia Isaac Seropian
Ages 7+ | 24 Pages
Publisher: Self-Published (2023) | ISBN-13: 9789939045665
What to Expect: Farming, food, bullying, empathy, friendship
Embodying lessons about friendship and harmony as well as nutrition and health, Friends in Wonderland is instructive on several levels, with facts about the history of cucumber cultivation sitting side-by-side with moral lessons about bullying and friendship.
In Wonderland, the cucumbers are determined to have a happy, healthy, productive day. However, from the very first moment they open their eyes, someone is determined to thwart that worthy goal: Sunflower is being loud, bossy, insulting, and very, VERY challenging. What’s more, it’s not just the cucumbers Sunflower is picking on—she’s being pretty argumentative with Tomato and Minty Mint, too! Luckily, Minty Mint does not get mad easily; she has words of wisdom for all the fruits and veggies in Wonderland to help them remember how to be friends and work together.
The story brings familiar foods to life as lively characters, encouraging readers to develop positive feelings about fruits and vegetables and appreciate their nutritional value. Cheerfully bright artwork brings the anthropomorphized garden to life on the page, and readers will likely find the quirky, joyful character depictions a highlight. At the end of the book, several coloring pages help keep readers engaged and thinking about the lessons in the story.
Friends in Wonderland is an original way to help young readers learn about the foods they eat.
