Handa's Surprise (Eileen Browne) BOOK REVIEW | A New Kind
Today I decided to try something different and review a nook from my childhood. I recently started feeling really nostalgic and borrowed some of my favourite books from the library...
In a Nutshell:
Handa puts 7 delicious fruits in a basket for her friend. But Handa's walk takes her past a variety of cheeky animals.
The Actual Review
I guess I should tell the story, if not for entertainment value, then at least to help me remember. As a child in reception, we had two teachers: Mrs C and Miss R. Miss R was of Indian decent and would often bring in books set in India and costumes and pictures from India. Mrs C, although of English decent, owned a hut in Africa and would often bring in photos and books that helped us learn about where she stayed, Handa's Surprise was one of these.
Reading it again, I can safely say that I enjoy it as much now as I did then! Handa's Surprise is humorously told with beautiful illustrations. It is such a colourful book and I think it also broadened my palette to even more fruits!
⚫️ A pure delight!
