“Broccoli Chronicles is an excellent children’s book that depicts the simplicity, innocence, and determination of Myrtle Beckle. Taneeka Bourgeois-daSilva captured the purity of a child’s heart along with the imagination and persistence of someone on a mission. Every parent and child will be inspired by the story told in this book because it promotes courage, hope, and purpose.”–Darlene Quiveors, First Lady, Mentor & LVN
“Broccoli Chronicles is a fun journey into the life of a girl who dares to be different. Myrtle’s ability to be true to herself is a timeless and lifelong message for people of all ages. All too often in this world people will stifle their own growth because they won’t go after what they want. Myrtle shows us that when we choose to go against the grain and carve our own path in life, we can unlock our inner power to affect positive change on the world. I love this book, and even more so my eight-year-old son connected with the overall themes, which is most rewarding as a mother, educator, and avid reader.”–Surayyah Muhammad, Special Education Teacher
“Myrtle Beckle is a spunky little girl who is not afraid to embrace her differences. Although she has lost her mother at such a young age, her high-spirited actions encourage readers of all ages to follow their dreams.”–Sonia Olmos, Elementary School Teacher
“Broccoli Chronicles encourages young children to take a stand for what they believe in, regardless of discouragement and negativity from other people. As educators, it can be difficult these days to find books that bring adventure, emotion, and humor all rolled into one. Myrtle reminded me of my own childhood and the adventures that I had to face, whether good or bad. She is quite a character.”–Sharon Lee, Transition Teacher
“You’ll love broccoli-loving Myrtle and her heartwarming quest to discover a cure for cancer so no one has to grow up without a mom, while staying true to herself.”–Kimberly Balala, School Librarian
