Lee & Low Books sent me Hot, Hot Roti for Dada-Ji to review.  Lee & Low Books is  an independent children’s book publisher focusing on diversity.  It is their company’s mission to meet the need for  stories that all children can identify with and enjoy.

Hot, Hot Roti for Dada-ji

When my four year old son was getting ready to take his afternoon nap in his new bed that my husband and I had just got all together, I thought it would make a good story to read.  I think as parents we should introduce diversity early in our childrens’ lives.  If they know from an early age that people are different, then there will be no big deal and acceptance will be natural.  I think it is important for young children to know people come in different colors, follow different religions and are of different cultures.  I have always had books that showed diversity to my children from the earliest stages, there are many board books in my house that introduce diversity.  When Lee & Low Books suggested this title, I was intrigued.

This book follows a little boy Aneel who is Indian-American.  His grandparents come to  live with him, and his grandfather tells many stories of when he was young.  There is a nice family dynamic in this book where the family works together making a meal from Dada-ji’s youth.  It introduces us to Indian words and foods and shows that even though families may be different cultures there are many things we all have in common.  It is  a delightful story about how when Dada-ji was a young boy he ate Hot, Hot Roti and it made him have supernatural powers where he could tie cobras in a knot and wrestle water buffalo.   Aneel is curious to know if Dada-ji ate the Roti today if he would have the same powers so they set out to find out.

Ethan and I enjoyed the book that was delightful to read and showed the love of a family through generations.

Lee & Low Books is sponsoring a give-away of a brand new copy of Hot, Hot Roti for Dada-Ji for one of Mommy Rambling’s readers.
