20 Books on Food Culture to Read to Your Baby

I have learned firsthand how powerful food can be as a gateway conversation to bigger issues.

Like race.

So I spent the morning creating a list of our favorite children’s books where food culture is the dominant theme. They are:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
·  Baby Goes to Market
·  Freedom Soup
·  Rainbow Stew
·  Anna Carries Water
·  Bi Bim Bop
·  Fry Bread
·  My Food, Your Food
·  Thank You Omu
·  Cora Cooks Pancit
·  Lailah’s Lunchbox: A Ramadan Story
·  Dim Sum for Everyone
·  Too Many Tamales
·  Hot, Hot Roti for Dada-ji
·  Amy Wu & The Perfect Bao
·  Latkes, Latkes
·  Hiromi’s Hands
·  Duck for Turkey Day
·  Pancakes to Parathas
·  Bilal Cooks Dal
·  Green is a Chili Pepper
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

What you read to your child matters. And it’s never too early to start.
