Maddi’s Fridge by Lois Brandt is a beautiful story of friendship centered around a hardship too many children face today–not having enough food. The two friends hold the secret that Maddi’s family doesn’t have enough to eat, while Sofia makes well-meaning attempts to bring her food each day.

It’s a topic difficult to talk about, especially to this age group, but Brandt spoons in just the right amount of lighthearted humor to make a typical ‘bringing awareness’ style book into a classic feel-good story about the bond between two friends.

Perfect for libraries, but better for story time, Maddi’s Fridge is a wonderful conversation opener and has the potential for some serious healing. Adorable illustrations by Vin Vogel round out the work and give it an extra dose of approachability. Certainly a keeper and magnificent grade school resource.
