Teita is here from Egypt and she will be making her traditional ka'ak for Eid. Zain is a big helper and he experiences Teita and Mama's stories about their Eid traditions in Egypt. Zain cannot wait to share his grandmother's delicious treat with all his classmates.


This is a new Eid book to add to your bookshelf. This book is culturally rich and beautifully displays the centuries old tradition of this special recipe. When you read this book, you will want to transport into the story to get a scrumptious taste of this special delicacy. I can never say no to intergenerational stories. The kiddos learn so much culture and tradition through the wisdom of the grandparents, this story is no different. The joy and love that is displayed between the 3 generations is just so heartwarming. The illustrations are cute and compliment the story wonderfully. The backmatter of the book provides so much information about the two Eids, history of Ka'ak and even a Ka'ak recipe.
