The lively chaos in this sparkling picture book is an ode to community kitchens and to the cheerful, practical hard work involved in making meals for many by many. The ingredients are not always perfect and the people are not always chef-level cooks, but the goal of preparing nourishing meals always leads to full bellies and a warm welcome for all. Our Little Kitchen is an inclusive world, with many kinds of bodies, lots of smiles, and occasional mild grumpiness; it feels real. There is nothing "othering" about this book; neither heavy-handed nor blandly earnest, this is a celebration with real meat and plenty of kid appeal.
