Martha Stevens-David Review: "The Basket of Fruit" by Margaret Hooton

According to the publicity material for this book "The Basket of Fruit" is the story of a girl living happily with her grandfather. She asks how evil came into the world and he sends her off to find the answer by her own experiences. Although the girl makes negative decisions along the way, her grandfather shows her unconditional love when she comes back.

At first glance, one assumes that this story is just another "children's" book story but upon deeper reading, it becomes apparent that it is not.

The author, along with the lovely illustrations, takes the reader to another realm that most children's book authors dare not go.

The story tells of a little girl and how she learns to deal with all the "emotions" that we, as humans, must deal with every day.

I read the book twice so as not to miss anything in the drawings or the words and found it to be very insightful in regard to the aspects of "human nature."

The Author hopes the book will help children to develop a higher level of consciousness and ignite their imagination.

Would I recommend this book to others? YES!
