This delightful picture book by renowened author and chef Carla Hall that emobdies the Christmas spirit. Carla and the Christmas Cornbread is a sweet story that brings feelings of warmth and joy to readers. Illustrator Cherise Harris' images transport readers to the past, with the character's emotions leaping off the page. The book has a fun, interactive element: sharing a recipe for homemade Christmas Cornbread and cinnamon butter.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
