Farah Loves Mangos

Book Synopsis

Farah loves mangos! She could eat them all day long and she wouldn’t mind living in one either. Every summer when she visits her Grandpa they always pick the ripe fruit from his mango tree. This year, however, the tree is empty! Farah puts her mind to it and decides she will make the tree grow fruit. But perhaps Farah will learn there is more to a mango tree than just the fruit it bears?

Our Review Panel says...

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a mango? Or swim in an ocean full of mangos? Well, Farah loves mangoes so much, she has!  This imaginative book centres around Grandpa’s Mango tree, which one year doesn’t bear fruit. Farah sets out trying to change this, but alas, has no luck. Downhearted, Farah doesn’t see the point in Grandpa’s tree. Until that is, she looks closer and finds a beautiful surprise.
A gorgeous book about appreciating nature and looking closer at the world around us, while representing how even if something makes us sad, it’s important to look on the bright side, use imagination, be resilient and dig a little deeper!
