Simon and the Sad Salad

Aside from the fact my partner is called Simon....! I also really like this picture book because it has a 'real' message - with a lovely twist and colourful illustrations - which many young school children should relate to. And the tough printing product is high quality. Well done Ethicool.

Sharing is caring.

Oh wow,what a beautiful story. I'm sure we all know someone or have been in Simon's position at some point in our life. This is a great book for schools to have in their libraries. There are many out there these days who are struggling and the lesson of sharing and caring in this beautiful story is very educational and well, just lovely.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT...

The bright and bubbly illustrations in this children's book help share a sad but lovely message about the diverse world we live in and what one person can do to help make someone else's life that bit brighter. Poverty, kindness and friendship are all touched on lightly in this story allowing for wonderful discussions and learning about how we can care for others.
Thank you Ethicool for sharing yet another thoughtful and empowering story of hope.

Great book

My 3yo really enjoyed this book and I found it really useful to help start the conversation about those that don’t have much and what we can do to help each other

A Big Bowl of Thoughtfulness!

Ethicool Books aren't just talking the talk, they are walking the walk! 👏🌏 I received Simon and the Sad Salad by Teigan Margetts and was super impressed to see it delivered in a compostable, zero-waste bag! Nice work 👌 I really loved that this story featured diverse children and that there was a clear message and encouragement to not just think about others, but to find a way to help those less fortunate than yourself. I can't recall a picture book that deals with the issue of poverty from a kids perspective like this. It was a springboard for LOTS of powerful questions from my kids.

Fantastic Message

Despite the fact that approximately 15 million children—21 percent—in the United States live in poverty, it’s not a topic that appear in picture books very often. Simon and the Sad Salad, I think, addresses a very real, very important gap in the market, helping children living in poverty to feel seen and included and helping children not affected by poverty to understand and support friends who are. This is a big topic, but Simon and the Sad Salad communicates it clearly and simply, making it relatable and comprehensible.
