From the Author

I wrote this book for every kid that has been teased about a weird lunch. Food can be a big part of a person's identity, especially when you are part of an immigrant community, and there are times when it can make you feel like an outsider. But food also has a way of bridging our differences. Whether it’s the joy we feel from eating our favorite comfort food or our memories of cooking in the kitchen— these are the universal experiences that everyone can relate to regardless of where we come from.

Amazing Book

LOVE the story itself and my 20 month old is obsessed with the book - she asks for it to be read over and over again and points at the characters and foods. The artwork is beautifully done and so detailed and colorful, and the book itself is very high quality. SO happy with this purchase!

What's That: A One-in-a-Million Find

What's That is on a short list of books that enrich my 4-year-old's life in a way that no other book has. We love the message of kinship, and how beautiful and authentic is this friendship that is formed from the common experienced of "otherhood". I believe every preschooler should read this book; every elementary school teacher should share this story in circle time. Indeed, educators could write a transformative reading or writing unit with this text at the center. I am grateful to Karen Chan for bringing this book into the world. We can't wait for the next one!

I vividly remember my own experience of taking daals and biryani in my school lunches and seeing all my classmates turn their noses up. It wasn’t long after that when I started strictly taking sandwiches and carrots in my lunch bag instead. I wish I would have had this type of message as a child, but I’m so grateful my daughter will have it. This book is so beautifully illustrated, and the story is such a lovely reminder of the importance of teaching children about where they came from.
