What the Bread Says
Cooking with a family member can not only help children learn how to cook healthy meals but also be a way to spread stories about family and life, which is the goal of this short picture book. Every Saturday a young girl and her Panpan spend the morning making fresh bread. Every Saturday they make a different type of bread, often relating to an incident in Panpan’s past that brings back painful memories. The bread ranges from French baguettes to Cuban bread to challah, with the final goal being to teach about tolerance of others and not to show hate to someone who might be different.
In the story, each type of bread brings to life a different place Panpan has lived and has been impacted by. The goal is to teach the granddaughter the importance of cooking and how history and geography have impacted people and their meals for a long time. This book is designed for adults to read to children and hold discussions with children after the reading. There are a number of materials available, including asking children about what bread would say, learning about family recipes, and more.
