Gracie and I were recently given the opportunity to read Harold’s Favorite Aunt: Fannie Fitzerbitz Greenburg by Dr. Sander Martin Fields. I honestly loved this book. It is perfect for you children AND for yourself. I found myself smiling each time I read it.
Harold’s Aunt Fannie didn’t cook, she only ate fast food. All the food in her house was wax and was for show. She even served Colonel Sander’s chicken nuggets for Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone except Harold headed to the nearest Chinese buffet. Her car was full of fast food trash as you can imagine. Aunt Fannie also worked in her garden. She could do it for hours. Harold loved to spend time alone with his Aunt Fannie, just like we all do with our favorite Aunt.
I know this book is about a favorite Aunt, but what I caught myself smiling about was myself while reading this book. I dearly hate to cook and will eat out if at all possible. A friend of mine said that he thought all women enjoyed cooking, I just looked at him and laughed. My car is full napkins, salt, etc from fast food places. This same friend cleans my car now and I don’t have the pile of fast food items in the Soul, but he still find little tidbits every Sunday. I do cook more within the past few years because Gracie and I are TRYING to eat better, but I still would much rather eat out.
I really suggest Harold’s Favorite Aunt: Fannie Fizterbitz Greenburg for you and your child to read. It is an awesome book. Honestly, everyone can relate to it because you have a favorite Aunt that has something that is special only to her. This book will bring back those memories. It would be great if your child could read it with their favorite Aunt too. It would be a super way for the two of them to grow even closer. You can buy it at Amazon for $8.96.
