Meet My Friend Teresa Janzen, Author of Little Mango in A Big World
I wanted to share an amazing resource with you by my friend, Teresa Janzen. It’s a delightful
children’s picture book called Little Mango in a Big World, but it is really so much more than that. It’s a way to talk to kids about tough topics like bullying, child homelessness, discrimination, and more.
The story features a mango named Maggie whose mango tree home suffers a catastrophe so great that she falls from the tree before she is ripe. Creatures in the world bully her, shun her, and judge her based on her circumstances. When a kind man finally gives her the care she needs, she realizes her potential and transforms the community.
Kids from 3 – 100 will love this story. Young ones will delight in the action-packed adventure and
older kids will uncover the message beneath and engage in conversation about social issues in the world today. As an added bonus, a portion of the proceeds of the book benefit ministries serving vulnerable children around the world.
Did I mention that Little Mango in a Big World was named the 2022 Golden Scroll Children’s Book of the Year? Well, it was, and with good reason. Even the illustrations have a message. The art was done by 18-year-old Samuel But Agot of South Sudan. He was raised in a refugee camp and knows firsthand the challenges vulnerable children face.
Little Mango in a Big World is available in premium hardcover, paperback, or Kindle. If you order
from the author’s website, even more money is able to be donated to ministries serving vulnerable children.
