The Sharing Secret by La Shell Wooten, illustrated by Nathaniel Mary Quinn
The smell of baking reminds me of my Nana, whom I loved dearly. She passed away many years ago and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t miss her. My Nana and I were very close. She was kind, funny and very talented in the kitchen. Nothing tops my Nana’s sweet potato pie! Reading The Sharing Secret brings back fond memories of helping my Nana bake sweet potato pies. There’s also some awesome lessons and reminders about sharing and karma, which are two things my Nana also believed in.
The Sharing Secret introduces young readers to Asai; a boy who learns about making choices during a trip to his grandfather’s bakery. Asai’s private baking lesson gives him an opportunity to learn how sharing with others is actually like giving a gift to himself. A colorful imagery where learning about cakes and karma is painted into every page.
