Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Amy Wilson Sanger brings A Little Bit of Soul Food to the table, in an addition to World Snacks series. Full-bleed photos of 3-D paper food creations rest on quilted fabric backdrops (a heap of fried chicken and pot full of collard greens are especially convincing). On the final spread, a cross-stitch sampler shares grandmotherly wisdom: "Soul is good for you, just use a little lard. It's okay if we get messy when we're eating in the yard!" Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-The cover of this brief introduction features an enticing dish piled with fried chicken, collard greens, and coleslaw. The text has a singsong quality: "When I wake up I smell biscuits/and gravy for our grits./I say thanks for smokey ham/cut into little itty bits." While the rhyme scheme is inconsistent, resulting in occasional unevenness, Sanger's three-dimensional collage images using wood, plastic, fabric, paper, and cross-stitching are wonderful. The board-book format would at first indicate that the audience for this book is infants and toddlers, but the text and the abstract nature of the illustrations make it a better choice for older children. The foods mentioned are listed on the back cover with a short explanation of each item. This offering could be used for curriculum units on food and culture.-Mary N.

    How wonderful it is to see a book celebrating foods from the African AMerican culture! I use this book in my classroom during out mulitcultural theme. I can't tell you how excited my students get to see familiar foods in our book of the week. We also taste some of the foods, and it is loads of fun! Amy Wilson Sanger's books are an incredibly fun and interesting way to introduce children to new foods and cultures. Bravo!!
