Hot, Hot Roti for Dada-ji

By The Pragmatic Mom

My son loves this book even though he’s never had Indian food ever and he has no idea what a roti is. It’s a Popeye-esque East Asian story set in a modern family that is heartwarming and fun. No stereo types here, when no one in Aneel, the little boy’s family, has time to make roti for Dada-ji (the grandfather), he whips up a perfect batch all by himself! I really like the multi-generational story of family who gets along … maybe this makes it a folk tale?! I jest.
