With a sweet message of kindness and generosity, this colorful picture book puts food and family center stage and helps young readers learn how to cook something special. Young readers can identify with Hiro wanting to cook a family recipe in Ramen for Everyone, and there's a wonderful lesson about trying again when things don't go as planned. Hiro's dad is sweet and patient, and the ramen recipe is detailed and simple for beginners. The colorful illustrations from Shiho Pate perfectly capture Hiro's emotions.

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.
