Summary / Annotation
Beautiful picture and lovely story of sharing and giving submitted by hsucc on June 14, 2019, 10:05pm The picture is just brilliant on EVERY page! The story of a community that shares, taking care of each other and enjoying good food together.
Lovely Story submitted by corywill86 on June 18, 2019, 3:43pm I read this book twice a day for at least a week -- it was an instant hit with my 4yo. I love that it portrays so many different people in a community coming together over sharing food. It's also wonderful to see a great story with an elderly woman of color as the main character.
