A Wonderful Five Star Review of
"What's for Dinner?"

on February 8, 2016
WHAT’S FOR DINNER? is a very sweet book by Penelope Anne Cole with delicate, tender illustrations by Samantha S. Bell. The story and illustrations complement each other well. When Katy is invited to her friend Amaeka’s house for dinner, she’s not sure what to expect. She thinks that Amaeka’s family will share Nigerian cuisine with her and she’s never tried it before… I love how this story encourages children to try different cuisines and open themselves up to learning about different traditions and cultures. I’ve read several of Penelope Anne Cole’s books and I truly appreciate how her books foster compassion and understanding. The end matter includes recipes, a map of Nigeria, and website links.
What's for Dinner? Penelope Anne Cole, Nigerian food, friends, family, helping, sharing, exotic foods, different foods, strange foods, multicultural, different countries, recipes, surprises.
