#blogbookaday: World Pizza

27 Mar

31939790Summary:  “When Momma spots a wishing star, she starts to ask for world peace—but a sneeze changes “peace” into “peace-AH-AH-AHchoo!” World PIZZA! Suddenly, yummy pies of every kind come drifting down from the sky. That’s not exactly what Momma hoped for . . . or is it? With humor, warmth, and heart, this delicious picture book celebrates the things that truly bring us together.” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: A sneeze interrupts a momma’s wish for world peace and turns it into… world pizza! What happens next really does create world peace as people eat pizza around the world, sharing different toppings, different methods of eating it and in the end, there really is peace. Can pizza really solve all the world’s problems? I’d have to say no, but this sweet text and gorgeous illustrations of diverse kids from across the globe makes for a great story!

Personal Reaction: I loved the text and illustrations of this story, with lines line, “And in that moment the world was filled with kindness and love and no fighting.” The illustrations show kids and families from around the globe eating pizza as diverse as the cultures on the planet. This would be a fun story to read and then make homemade pizza for dinner one night!

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!

    My library doesn’t have this one — so I filled out the suggest a title form! I hope they buy it. They have several other Cece Meng books. :).
