📚 BOOK REVIEW 📚
Title: Samosas Are So Yummy
Author: Asma Sara Ali
Illustrator: Natasha Faltinek
Rating: 7/10 🌟
This little girl talks us through samosa- making fun and samosa-eating experience in this book. Samosas, a delicious savoury treat that is perfect to eat anywhere and anytime. She indulges together with the family or snacks on her own.
This fun book takes the reader through a cultural dish that plays a huge part in the little girl's life. Through the delicious samosa, she bonds with her dad during a basketball game, she celebrates with her extended family and cooks them with her parents. There are unfamiliar words used in this book that I had to google, (aloo, keema, chaat) and makes me wish there was a glossary. The text is written in rhyme and is mostly consistent. There is mention of 'birthdays' in this book, I would have preferred to be left out. Other than that, it definitely is a fun book that kids can relate to, specifically those that are familiar with samosas.
