Product description


"A quietly radical, eminently delightful book." ― Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Refreshingly innovative...a lovely picture-book debut." ―

"The author uses food as a way to create common ground and bridge cultures. The illustrations are charming and the facial expressions of the children are endearing. The recipe itself, diversity of the characters, and the father taking on the role as a cook and enlisting his son to help prepare dinner are interwoven themes that make this book perfect for reading discussions among preschoolers. The book also shows that the deepest flavors come with ingredients that simmer gently. This teaches patience to youngsters. The story can prompt discussions about patience, friendship, expanding your palate, measurements, and spices. A fun introduction to cross cultural sharing." ―
School Library Journal, Online --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
