Maddi's Fridge by Lois Brandt -GIVEAWAY

Welcome to Middle Grade Monday! Today I have a giveaway for a MG themed picture book, Maddi's Fridge by Lois Brandt. To enter fill out the rafflecopter form below. If you don't see it click, read more.


Blurb- Best friends Sofia and Maddi live in the same neighborhood, go to the same school, and play in the same park, but while Sofia’s fridge at home is full of nutritious food, the fridge at Maddi’s house is empty. Sofia learns that Maddi’s family doesn’t have enough money to fill their fridge and promises Maddi she’ll keep this discovery a secret. But because Sofia wants to help her friend, she’s faced with a difficult decision: to keep her promise or tell her parents about Maddi’s empty fridge.


Filled with colorful artwork, this picture book addresses issues of poverty with honesty and sensitivity while instilling important lessons in friendship, empathy, trust, and helping others. A call to action section, with six effective ways for children to help fight hunger and information on antihunger groups, is also included.

And it is already getting great reviews- Kirkus  Reviews calls Maddi’s Fridge “Notable…A thoughtful and well-executed look at the challenge of childhood hunger."
