Yiayia's Kitchen, Family Traditions (Hardcover)
Sharing traditions with kids is a great way to show love and create lasting memories. Koukla loves to spend time in the kitchen with her grandmother. Yiayia teaches her to prepare traditional foods, as well as their family’s Greek traditions.
One day, Koukla bakes Greek cookies with her aunt and Yiayia. The ladies teach her to roll the cookies into shapes, but Koukla is sad because hers look different. Yiayia explains that it took years to learn to roll the cookies the way she does, and it takes practice. But she also reminds her granddaughter that even though the cookies look different on the outside, they are made from the same ingredients, and they will be just as delicious, especially that they made them together with love.
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.
