Kitchen Scenes
Zinger, Gary
School Library Media Activities Monthly, v25 n8 p39-40 Apr 2009
The dynamics of how a family operates can be revealed by what happens in the kitchen. The kitchen is not just a cooking and eating place but also a place where family members gather--children playing board games or doing homework, parents looking through their latest bills and figuring out the family budget, and grandparents browsing through old photos and scrapbooks or planning their next excursion. "In My Momma's Kitchen" (Nolen) captures some of the emotional moments that play out in the kitchen of a young African American girl. This article describes some of the scenes found in the book. A list of creative activities that can be done in the kitchen is also presented. (Contains 8 resources.)
