Brief Summary: From Little, Brown and Company-“Everyone in the neighborhood dreams of a taste of Omu’s delicious stew! One by one, they follow their noses toward the scrumptious scent. And one by one, Omu offers a portion of her meal. Soon the pot is empty. Has she been so generous that she has nothing left for herself?”
Ideas for using this book in classroom or library – I don’t know if this could be used in the classroom, but this book would be great to teach young children about kindness, about giving to other people. Perhaps this could be used in a kindergarten class. I will say it is notable that this book includes diverse characters.
Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it – I loved the colorful illustrations that even show the aroma wafting across the city.
