Tomatoes for Neela
Part informational, part family story, this attractive book will speak to young kitchen helpers and those with loved ones in far-off places. This is a true celebration of the ways food binds families, and not just in the eating of it. The preparation is everything. Working together, Neela and her mother create a family sauce, with one jar squirreled away for her paati’s winter visit. Joyful illustrations and quiet cooperation show that by helping others, we help ourselves.
