Theme: Our food affects our health and our actions.

Author’s Author’s point view is third person narrator. He has used short sentences.
Style: His vocabulary has not limited. He has used rhythmic words and idiom.

Cemo and Memo are friends. Before Cemo went to the garden, he made

Cemo beat the race and Memo was very upset. Cemo said that health care

This book is a good example of encouraging children to eat healthy foods.


It can be used in a instructive way for children who do not have a
breakfast habit, who choose to eat. Some children do not drink olives,
cheese, eggs and milk, so Cemo is a sample character. With this book,
children can talk about healthy food. If our health is bad, we can talk about
Reflection how our actions are affected. Although the book does not provide

Author’s point view is third person narrator. The sentences were long.
Preschool children can get bored of sentences. The number of pages was
too high. Therefore I think it is more appropriate to 6 years or above. In
Author’s the book, there were direct sentences. For example, people are different
Style: from each other and we need to respect them. I think these sentences are
not appropriate to be expressed in sentences rather than being given to
children. The child should interpret it and make sense.

Dilara is a hard working student and one day the teacher gives a group
assignment. She becomes a band with a special needs student named Fatih.

Plot Dilara wants to change her group because she thinks Fatih is different and

Summary: does not want to work with her. Her teacher gets angry with what she says.
Later Dilara falls in the park while she is playing and breaks her leg.
Dilara is forced to use a wheelchair and understand Fatih. She apologies.
Then they both become very good friends.
Studies have shown that children in the pre-school period discover their
own competence and inadequacies. They see this through their social
environment but in preschool children can be very cruel to each other.
These reasons can make people feel ridiculed by making a difference. To
Reflection prevent this, it is extremely important to teach children that we need to
respect differences. This book can be read for children with special needs
in the classroom, for children from different ethnic cultures or countries.
Thanks to the Dilara character, the child can understand that he / she has to
respect the differences by empathizing.
