Chamberlin, M., & Chamberlin, R. (2005). Mama Panyas pancakes: A village tale from Kenya. Cambridge, MA: Barefoot Books.Mama Panya’s Pancakes: A Village Tale from Kenya is such a great cultural book. In this book we see Adika and his mother, Mama Panya, travel to the market for ingredients to make pancakes. On their way, Adika keeps inviting friends and Mama Panya is worried that she does not have enough money to buy extra ingredients. Nonetheless, Mama Panya does not stop Adika. In the end, their friends show up for pancakes but, they also bring something to share like- fish, butter, and flour.

This book is great because to me it says that even those who are less fortunate are still willing to share what little they have. Towards the end of the book, we learn some Swahili words, animals present in Kenya, the lifestyle in Kenya, and even the secret recipe for Mama Panya’s pancakes! In the classroom, students can share what their favorite traditional food is, and if simple enough, maybe even bring some samples into class.

Or, the class could make a dish as a whole.
