Sharon and Mulungi
by Maureen Aliddeki
“Train up a child in the way they should go and when they are old, they will not depart from it.”
Sharon and Mulungi is a 3 series Christian children’s book about three children growing up in Seventh-day Adventist homes from three different continents. Sharon from Newcastle (Australia), Mulungi (moo-loo-nji) from Uganda (Africa), and Ayumu (ahyou-moo) from Japan (Asia).
The story is about these children’s experience of the Sabbath from Friday sunset to Saturday sunset, what their families do differently during that time, different cultural foods, nature, and animals all pointing to God’s creation. This book allows the children to enjoy the beauty of diversity and appreciate the difference of one culture from another yet enabling them to understand that all different people were created by one God.
This book will help parents/carers to easily explain the concept of Sabbath to the young ones. Teaching children to find joy in the Sabbath and to understand it’s blessing at a young age will allow them to fully comprehend the necessity of this beautiful, blessed day. They can easily transition into adults that love and enjoy the Sabbath rest.
This book also points out the fact that the seventh day Adventist church is a worldwide movement and is present in almost all countries.
