Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
In a follow-on to her successful Everybody Eats Rice, author Dooley has Carrie visiting the neighborhood to find a three-handled rolling pin for her mother. This errand was devised by her mother to keep Carrie from fighting with her brother during a rainy Saturday morning. While searching, Carrie samples various types of bread made that morning by her multicultural neighbors. The recipes for these seven delicious breads are found at the end of the book. Soft colored drawings of the buildings and people bring this varied but friendly neighborhood to life.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-A rainy-day story from the creators of Everybody Cooks Rice (Carolrhoda, 1991). Carrie is sent out into her multiethnic neighborhood to borrow a three-handled rolling pin. It seems like a demeaning errand for a girl who appears to be too bright to be that naive, but the adults see it as a joke, and she has a fine time visiting the neighbors, eating seven kinds of bread, and finding enough friends for a kickball game after the rain stops. She samples coconut bread from Barbados, chapatis from India, corn bread from South Carolina, pocket bread from Lebanon, challah from the Jewish "old country," pupusa from El Salvador, and braided bread from Italy. Recipes are included. Thornton's richly colored, softly realistic illustrations show the diversity of age and nationality, lifestyles, and staple foods of this friendly neighborhood.-Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME
Kirkus Reviews
The team behind Everybody Cooks Rice (1991, not reviewed) returns to the same multiethnic neighborhood on a rainy day when everyone is inside baking bread.

Carrie and her little brother are fighting, so their mother sends Carrie out to borrow "a three-handled rolling pin." As she makes the rounds of the neighbors' houses on this fool's errand, Carrie samples Barbadian coconut bread, Indian chapatis (readers never see these), Southern cornbread, pita, challah, pupusas, and her own mother's Italian bread. Recipes for all seven breads follow; adult help is required for most. Although the plot is very much driven by the mission—to show bread from various traditions—and subplots about a planned kickball game or large puddles only pad it out, this is an appealing combination of story and cookbook.
