Our Little Kitchen

Tamaki, J.
A book that highlights the joy and satisfaction of contributing to the community, this story describes how community volunteers work together to prepare meals. The book charmingly incorporates upbeat rhymes, onomatopoeia, action words, and sound effects, helping readers hear the sounds of a busy kitchen. This book may be an engaging read-aloud in a primary classroom, encouraging class discussions about community, responsibility, gardening, meal-making, or volunteering. Students may have opportunities to think critically about how communities can come together to support each other and how eating and sharing the food we have grown ourselves is healthy and sustainable.
