What the Bread Says

Baking with Love, History, and Papan

By Vanessa Garcia

Illustrated by Tim Palin


Join Papan and Vanessa on a globe-trotting, bread-baking adventure from Spain to France to Cuba and back again!  Based on a true story, this is how Vanessa, while kneading, dancing, and singing, learned about her past, and how it helped shape her present and future.

Baking bread requires a lot of patience. Some of it is about mixing ingredients together, and another part -- a big part -- is about waiting. Waiting while the dough rises, rests, rises, bakes. And while they wait, Papan tells Vanessa his amazing life adventures! In this storytelling, Vanessa learns about her roots, the power of love and family, and how stories can carry us through difficult times.
