Dad's Favorite Cookie | Little Lit Book Series

We follow a little girl named Yuka throughout her day in Japan as she waits for her father to come home from his busy ramen shop.  While at a spring festival, Yuka is surprised and extremely pleased to win a basket of traditional Japanese treats called wagashi, which includes her dad's favorite cookie, daifuku.  There is so much to enjoy and learn about Japanese foods and traditions, with many cultural notes sprinkled throughout the narrative.  A lovely and whimsical read.  See a preview of its page spreads here.

Dad's Favorite Cookie was written by Gu-mi Jeong, illustrated by Soon-kyo Yoo and is part of the Global Kids Storybook collection from Lerner Publishing.
