Ungi's Big Adventure


Must read 🏆

This story will delight you with colorful pictures and heart-warming words as Ungi, a little mushroom, tries to find her way back home.

Ungi's Big Adventure by Dori Gronich is a fun and engaging story about Ungi, a little mushroom who got washed up during a rainstorm. It will quickly capture the imagination of children who can compare Ungi’s family with their own. It will also sustain their interest as they follow Ungi’s journey as she tries to find her way back home. 

Filled with amazing illustrations and colorful characters, adults and children alike will find it an amusing read. Each character that Ungi meets is a pleasant encounter. Each one leaves a clue that could help her find her parents. It is like presenting the concept of mystery and problem-solving in a playful way that children can understand.

Ungi’s Big Adventure has a lot of values to share with children. One is the value of perseverance: to never give up even in times when you’re lost. Another one is courage: to be able to overcome one’s fears so that one can solve the problem at hand.

Most importantly, I find that this story teaches the value of home and family. It shows the reader that no matter how far we go and no matter how many other beings we meet in life, we’d always want to find our way back home.
