I go for a 5 Star Rating for this children’s book Abigail and the Sahara Dessert, another work of author Tali Carmi. Though the story is simple story but clearly conveyed the act of Kindness well. Also, the graphical and colorful pictures are artistically done and will surely enjoy looking by our little one. For parental screening and story familiarity, I read it first before reading this with our daughter whose name is also Abigail.
According to the book Teach Me to Do it Myself, us reading the story first will not just enables us to check for suitability, but will prepare us to introduce the story well and draw our child in before we will start reading to our kiddos. You know those background knowledge… 🙂
The story of Abigail and the Sahara Adventure begins when our favorite character named Abigail found the magical bike in her grandparents old house which brought her to Sahara which is Arabic for “The Great Dessert”.
In this magnificent dessert, she met Jasmine (the tribe girl). She also learned that Jasmine needs to bring water for her family but there was nothing to drawn from their well, she immediately shared what she discovered while she was flying with the magical bike. Abigail mentioned to her the large group of trees she saw and the idea that there might be a water nearby. In her kindness, Abigail didn’t even hesitate to talked with the tribe leader and even led the tribe to the oasis when she was asked by the tribe leader. In responds to Abigail’s kindness, Jasmine’s father gave Abigail a pita bread and sweet tea plus a friendship bracelet.
This remind me of the passage from the book of Galatians regarding doing good thing and harvesting the fruit of that goodness in proper time.
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do-Galatians 6:9 New International Version
Because Reading is Teaching, I will suggest this book to be read by parents, teachers and mostly homemakers to their little ones. Abigail and the Sahara Adventure is now available in kindle and Audible (unabridged) format. To God be the glory.
