Today Is…

National Tell A Story Day!

Tell a Story Day celebrates story-telling of all kinds. It doesn’t matter if it’s fiction or non-fiction, a tall tale, or folk-lore. Today is day to tell them all.

In honor of Tell A Story Day here’s a list of some kid friendly books about hunger:

One Potato, Two Potato by Cynthia DeFelice

Uncle Willie and the Soup Kitchen by Dyanne Disalvo-Ryan

Tight Times by Trina Schart Hyman

A Kids’ Guide to Hunger & Homelessness: How To Take Action! by Tracy Apple Howard with Sage Howard

Beatrice’s Goat by Lori Lohstoeter

The Good Garden: How One Family Went from Hunger to Having Enough by Katie Smith Milway

Material World: A Global Family Portrait by Peter Menzel and Charles C. Mann (while not a children’s book it is still a great book with photographs that show families from around the world surrounded by their household items.)
