Ring in the new year and celebrate freedom with Bahni Turpin's lively narration and a Haitian Creole "kompa" beat. Ti Gran's warm, gravelly voice and Belle's youthful excitement place listeners right in the kitchen with them as they prepare a holiday feast. Listeners can imagine all the chopping and toe tapping as Belle learns about a culinary tradition with roots in the Haitian Revolution. Subtle sound effects bring solemnity to the history of slavery and the fight for freedom. Young listeners who love to spend time cooking with elders will especially appreciate Belle's autonomy in the kitchen and her pride when she shares her soup with her family. More information about the Revolution and a recipe for Freedom Soup are provided at the end of the audiobook. E.E.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
