The illustrations in this book are complex, eye catching, filled with detail, and beautiful.I highly recommend this book. I particularly like the end of the book where they have a “poster” discussing many of the places, animals, etc… mentioned in the book.

Journey to India and discover ways to control a hot temper.

MALLIKA is a tiger with a temper. Her short fuse is ignited first by her infuriating brother Ben and then by a mischievous band of jeering monkeys. Short-tempered Mallika even manages to get mad at herself!

It takes Mallika a while to figure out that being angry is no fun and that a tantrum doesn’t make things better.

India’s Ranthambhore National Park is the scene of Jami Parkison’s powerful story about managing anger. Once the private hunting grounds of maharajahs, Ranthambhore is now a wildlife sanctuary and home to the magnificent Bengal tiger. Under ancient banyan trees and among ruins of palaces and pavilions, this now endangered species rules the landscape. Ranthambhore is home to a host of exotic species, including leaping sambar deer, the regal peacock, the imposing tree-pie bird, and the revered langur monkey. Artist Itoko Maeno captures the mystery and excitement of Mallika’s world in compelling watercolor illustrations.

So journey to India and Mallika’s world and meet an amazing little tiger who learns amazing ways to control her hot temper.

A SURPRISE and added bonus is the “Enrichment Information” which includes lots of facts about India, India’s People, the Ranthambhore National Park, the Peacock, the Sambar, the Banyan Tree, the Cicada, the Tree-Pie, the Langur Monkeys, and best of all the Bengal Tiger. This is fascinating detail that did not make it into the story itself, but is very rich in interesting description.

A second big plus is the “Letter to Parents and Educators” which includes many relevant questions and comments to facilitate conversation with young readers about the message of the story…learning to manage and control anger and temper tantrums. So even though on the surface this is just an engaging story for children, it is also truly helpful in a real way.

My three kids absolutely love this story. They laughed so much, while reading it aloud. It is not too long and perfect for a beginner reader. There is another book by Shelley on Amazon and I will definitely buy it also.

GUMBO GOES DOWNTOWN Homeless and Runaway Children's Picture Book (Fully Illustrated Version)

GUMBO GOES DOWNTOWN Homeless and Runaway Children’s Picture Book (Fully Illustrated Version)

Carol Talley

Price: FREE

The great thing about this book is the guide at the end to help children of all ages critically think about the message of the story and how it relates to life. Sample questions at the end are a great way to start a discussion, and can easily be adapted for most age groups. The illustrations are terrific, and lend a sense of motion to the book. Adults would benefit from reading the guide at the end first, and then sharing with children.

SELF ESTEEM – DISCOVERING HAPPINESS WHERE YOU ARE

Running away from home! Who doesn’t sometimes dream of it? To go someplace else, to be somebody else!

Here is the story of a loveable mutt named Gumbo, who-longing to be SOMEBODY-abandons his watchdog duties and follows the streetcar tracks downtown to the historic French Quarter of New Orleans. There he discovers a world of new experiences and meets a colorful cast of canine characters, including a dancing poodle and self-appointed tour guide named Pompon, the blue-ribboned Champion Stella de Chateau Blanc, the fearsome Catahoula Hound and, finally, a nameless, homeless dog who visits Gumbo on the moonlit levee like a sad dream.

On his journey, Gumbo learns that the identity he seeks is not to be found in new places, however exciting, or in new acquaintances, however distinguished. For Gumbo, the road to self-esteem leads right back home, where he loves and is loved and where he is, after all, somebody very important.

Author Carol Talley, a former resident of New Orleans, returned to this picturesque city, tracing Gumbo’s journey down St. Charles Avenue and through the French Quarter to Jackson Square and the riverfront.

From Gumbo’s own shotgun house with its rose-bedecked chain-link fence to the sun-drenched Mississipi with its mighty ships and paddle wheelers, Illustrator Itoko Maeno has captured the kaleidoscopic magic of New Orleans for this classic tale of running away and returning.

Gumbo thinks he leads a pretty dull life. Maybe that’s why he decides one day to run away from home, to leave his watchdog duties and go Downtown. Children will delight in following Gumbo as he finds adventure aplenty in the historic French Quarter and meets a delightful cast of canine characters. And they will learn-as Gumbo does-that wherever he goes and whomever he meets, everyone seems to be looking for the very thing he has left behind-a place called home.

This is such a popular book in New Orleans, especially since the tragedy of Katrina. With its beautiful descriptions of the famous spots in the city, it has become especially dear to tourists and those with happy memories of fabulous New Orleans.

GUMBO GOES DOWNTOWN will help young readers examine the importance of their own homes, and help them explore sources of inner contentment.

A SURPRISE and added bonus is the “Enrichment Information” which includes lots of facts about Louisiana, the Mississippi River, New Orleans, a ShotGun House, the French Quarter, Jackson Square, The St. Charles Streetcar, and Gumbo (not the main character, but the spicy stew made with shrimp, crabs, oysters, chicken, ham, or even rabbit or squirrel! Seasoned with thyme, bayleaf, chilies, and cayenne pepper and thickened with okra or file, it is delicious!) This is fascinating detail that did not make it into the story itself, but is very rich in colorful descriptions of many famous places in and around New Orleans.

A second big plus is the “Letter to Parents and Educators” which includes many relevant questions and comments to facilitate conversation with the young reader about the message of the story…the importance of home…right where you are. So even though on the surface, this is just an engaging story for children, it is also truly helpful in a real way.
