Yiayia's Kitchen, Patience (Hardcover)
Cooking is a great way to share traditions, show love, and teach important lessons. Koukla loves to cook in the kitchen with her grandmother. Yiayia teaches her about her Greek heritage and family traditions, as well as many valuable life lessons.
One day, Yiayia teaches Koukla to make a traditional Greek egg-lemon soup called Avgolemono. Yiayia teaches her granddaughter that every recipe has steps that must be done in a certain order, and they take time. Koukla is hungry and wants to speed up the process. She ignores Yiayia and improvises, but the result is not what she’d hoped. Yiayia explains the importance of patience, because when we rush, things may not go as we intend.
Beautifully illustrated, Yiayia’s Kitchen teaches kids valuable lessons, but most of all, they’re about the unconditional love between a grandparent and grandchild and the importance of family bonds. Perfect for kids ages 3-10.
