Two 5-Star Reviews for my new book:
What's for Dinner?
on November 28, 2015
“What’s For Dinner” written by Penelope Anne Cole and illustrated by Samantha S. Bell, is a lovely story of two girls from different lands, who become friends through their church and share their foods and family love. Amaeka of Nigerian decent has invited Katy to dinner. Katy is worried about what will be served. The girls are experiencing life in ways they are not accustomed to, but graciously take part in the experience. I think children will relate to this book as diversity is ever growing in our country and countries around the world today. Amaeka and Katy are perfect examples of acceptance and friendship. This would be a book for the classroom or a child’s library. Either way, a pleasant read.

Culturally specific books are important because research has shown that children fair well when they can identify with people who are similar to themselves. I applaud award winning children’s author, Penelope Anne Cole for writing her newest book, “What’s for Dinner.” Children all over the world will be inspired with her book because it celebrates diversity.
