Our Little Kitchen
A picture book about a lively evening in a community kitchen from Governor General's Award-winning author and illustrator Jillian Tamaki.
Tie on your apron!
Roll up your sleeves!
Pans are out, oven is hot.
The kitchen's all ready,
Where do we start?
In this lively, rousing picture book from Caldecott Honoree Jillian Tamaki, a crew of resourceful neighbours come together to prepare a meal for their community. With a garden full of produce, a joyfully chaotic kitchen and a friendly meal shared at the table, Our Little Kitchen is a celebration of full bellies and people looking out for one another.
Includes two recipes and an author's note about the volunteering experience that inspired the book.
