The story of Cora cooking a family recipe with her mother is a lovely piece which will appeal to children and parents alike. The writing is nicely done, but the illustrations are what really make it stunning. Kristi Valiant's warm colors and scenes capture all of Cora's curiosity and eagerness. The love between mother and daughter is also evident from Valiant's art. Don't forget to see what the family dog is up to in every scene! Great work.

When the young girl Cora's older siblings are not around as they usually are to help her mother prepare dinner, she steps in. The family is a Filipino American family. She and her mother prepare the favorite Filipino dish of noodles with vegetables, spices, and chicken called pancit. As Cora is doing some of the more involved tasks, the mother talks a little about how Cora's grandfather back in the Philippines would prepare pancit for field workers. The preparation of the meal thus becomes an activity bringing together different generations of the family. With the central activity of the story and the recipe for pancit following it, the book also relates to the current interest in teaching young children about food, diet, and cooking.
