This book is warm and fun, as it's equal parts love and delicious homemade food. Soul Food Sunday delivers a familiar and comforting glimpse into the world of one family's tradition, based around food but grounded in love and quality time. Charles G. Esperanza's illustrations are bold and bright, while Winsome Bingham's use of exciting words, including onomatopoeia, are engaging. Readers will be inspired by the delicious food on the pages, and may want to try the recipe for macaroni and cheese at the conclusion of the book, or whip up one of their family's favorites to continue the experience.

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.
