Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-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.

After being a little disappointed with Yum Yum Dim Sum, I was so happy to read through A Little Bit of Soul Food. My kids love it too. We just moved to the South from California....the sushi and Mexican food depicted in Sanger's earlier books were familiar to us and we enjoyed reading about our favorite foods. Now we have another book of familiar yummy foods to read about!
The backgrounds are inspired by Gee's Bend quilts, a treat for the fiber-art lovers out there.

I purchased this book for my nephew's first New Year's Day gift last year. The subject matter was perfect. In our family (ex-southerners) we always serve up a BIG, traditional Southern meal on New Year's Day. All of the foods depicted in this book are familiar to us. From okra and hush puppies to cornbread and 'nana pudding. What a great idea for a toddler book, and the paper collage/fiber art is pretty good too. A great way to introduce your little one to Southern cuisine and culture.

The other world snacks books are much better than this one. I'm glad we have it but not our favorite.

This is one of our favorites of hers! My son loves the rhythm and rhyming of the story and I love looking at her illustrations. Without fail, after reading this, I want a big plate of fried chicken and some greens. A fantastic board book!

If you are a foodie and want to share your love of food with you little one these books are perfect. The art is a mix of paper cutouts with found objects and the rhyming story is very cute. You'll be repeating things like "Hola Jalapeno" to your little one with glee! I just wish this author would put out more of this series of books.

My family is full of soul food lovers. I grew up on southern specialties & love that my little boy has his own book about collard greens & fried chicken;) This is probably my son's fathers favorite book to read to him. I'll sometimes over hear them in the room discussing the food & my little guy with very few words saying "yum yum". I think that this book would make a nice addition to any little ones library (under two that is).
