Hot, Hot Roti for Dada-ji

By A Patchwork of Books

I usually only do picture book posts on Saturdays with my Picture Book Saturday compilations, but this one has so much going for it, it deserves its own day. Storytelling, facts about Indian-American culture, lots of family moments, and FOOD are all included in this story and I loved every minute of it. Filled with a nice feeling of family and love, the combination of the stories from India, the energy of Dada-ji, and the yummy roti process, this is a fantastic multicultural picture book. Traditional Hindi words and phrases are woven into the story beautifully and all explained in a glossary in the back…A really great choice for family reading, teaching about other cultures, etc.
