“8 Ice-creams a Day?! Who doesn’t want to! Maybe this is the most delicious way for children to learn what “endeavor” means. In this story kids will learn if they have a dream, they must try hard to make it come true, and giving up doesn’t make any sense. Apart from that, the humor in the illustrations, depicts that not every way is the best way to reach your goal.”
