Opinion

From Library Staff

Typically relegated to only getting to do the "kid jobs", Cora finally gets her chance to help Mama make pancit when her older siblings are not available.

Although the dish is unique to Cora's culture, children of all backgrounds will share her feelings at being allowed to help cook a meal for the first time.

This is my favorite Filipino picture book that captures a typical family’s ties to tradition as the youngest of five, Cora, learns how to cook the pancit that her grandfather taught her mom.

Pancit is a labor-intensive noodle Filipino staple.

Like getting along with your family successfully, cooking pancit requires a lot of time, effort, and patience. You need many ingredients, lots of chopping, advance preparation, timing, and practice. Each step in the process is illustrated in a golden glow reminiscent of happy childhood memories in the kitchen.

Kids will learn new Filipino vocabulary and the pancit recipe. Enjoy!

We enjoyed this book and learning about a new culture. We even made the recipe in the back with success.
