Review:
This quiet, warmhearted picture book is a subtle exploration of the meaning of family and the ties of love, acceptance and tradition that hold an extended family together. Hope, whose father is white and whose mother is black, brings her own special dessert treat to Aunt Poogie's potluck dinner. "My cousin Laura on my papa's side taught me how to make this," Hope explains. The treat - pickles with a peppermint stick inside - startles the assembled guests but wins their eventual approval. "Sharing food is a good way of sharing family," Aunt Poogie says, and the listener/viewer will be pleased to have taken part in this happy, multi-generational gathering chockfull of affection and good will.
