Our Little Kitchen won the Eisner Award for Best Publication for Early Readers (up to age 8) this year so I had to check it out. This story is based on the Tamaki’s experience volunteering at a small community kitchen in Brooklyn. I found this text to be charming and I believe it will easily find a home in many primary classrooms. This book is perfect for those who love cooking, community and comics!
