It is just very true that 5 blocks from Prairie Path Books, families from around the world visit the PRC food pantry looking to better fill their refrigerators and dry pantries with food. This Storytime will feature not only a frolicsome friendship, but one that follows two best friends from an afternoon playtime in the park to a snack-time visit to Maddi’s fridge, one that is nearly empty. And so Maddi’s best bud Sophia, and all of us, are nudged over to a greater understanding of community and caring for those all around us.
How often does a picture book touch your heart enough to bring you to tears? Maddi’s Fridge is a compassionate, hopeful, giving, funny picture book about friendship and real world family issues. With so many families living in low-income situations, this book provides the perfect way to teach compassion.
