- This story is based on the lives of children and families Save the Children has worked with in Sylhet, Bangladesh, where poverty and malnutrition are huge problems. Many families struggle to find the funds to send their children to school. Often, it’s the girls who are first to miss out.
- The story of the sisters in this book shows how a simple gift – like a pair of very hungry goats – can change the course of not just one child’s life, but the lives of the whole family. Girls who have been part of Save the Children’s Suchana programme share their knowledge about nutrition with their families and are even able to pay for their younger sibling’s tuition fees.
“These books are great. The smalls (4 and 6) love them and they make a lovely change from the princess / knight / witch / frog tales they usually read!”Kristin, Wonderparent ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
