— excerpt from the book
Connie Smith is an author who has published books of lessons and inspiration. The recent book she published is “Great Gobs of Goose Grease: An Account Of A Stroke Happening And The Trial And Struggles To Comeback”.
“The Pie, The Pie, and Oh That Smell!” is a children’s picture book that depicts the value of appreciation. It is the story of a mother who loves to bake sweets, such as pies. Her family loves the desserts she makes, but one day she gets tired. As she stopped cooking, her family missed the wonderful smell of her baking.
However, how will they show her that they are grateful for her? As her daughter’s birthday is approaching, will she make her special apple pie?
A small appreciation can make the heart flutter. The author didn’t fail to showcase how to appreciate the efforts parents give to their kids. Cindy, the daughter, learned how important it is to show it. As the daughter wanted to taste her mother’s baking, she made extra efforts to show her appreciation.
This work received praise from Michael Radon of the US Review of Books. The reviewer highlighted that “this book, with its large illustrations, colorful characters, and warm, inviting tone, not only shows kids how parents need and deserve gratitude for their efforts but also opens up the conversation about children pitching in on tasks that they may take an interest in when they are old enough to handle them.”
