Summary
A Kirkus Reviews Best Picture Book of 2019
An Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature Honor Book 2019

Six-year-old Bilal introduces his friends to his favorite dish--daal!--in this charming picture book that showcases the value of patience, teamwork, community, and sharing.

Six-year-old Bilal is excited to help his dad make his favorite food of all-time: daal! The slow-cooked lentil dish from South Asia requires lots of ingredients and a whole lot of waiting. Bilal wants to introduce his friends to daal. They've never tried it! As the day goes on, the daal continues to simmer, and more kids join Bilal and his family, waiting to try the tasty dish. And as time passes, Bilal begins to wonder: Will his friends like it as much as he does?

This debut picture book by Aisha Saeed, with charming illustrations by Anoosha Syed, uses food as a means of bringing a community together to share in each other's family traditions.

Booklist Review: "When Abu calls his son in to cook dinner, Bilal's friends are curious about why dinner needs to be prepared so early. Daal takes a long time to cook, so Bilal invites his friends to help him choose lentils and spices from the pantry and mix them together in a large pot. Afterward, Bilal catches whispers that the daal smells funny and worries that his friends won't like it. There's no knowing until evening. When the daal finally finishes simmering, the kids gather around the table, where sounds of slurp! and mmm! allay Bilal's concerns. This story is refreshingly innovative in numerous ways. First, with a father and son in charge of cooking and no mother in sight, gender roles are shifted. Second, it tackles the matter of different food with joy rather than angst. And third, Urdu words are seamlessly integrated without cushioning for the linguistic outsider. Cheerful illustrations capture the children's reactions and depict a happily multicultural cast. An author's note and chana daal recipe conclude this lovely picture-book debut.--Amina Chaudhri Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Saeed, a founder of We Need Diverse Books, offers a relatable story about trying new foods and introducing friends to family traditions. Bilal loves daal and couldn't be happier to share it with his two friends, Elias and Morgan. The kids-who, in Syed's friendly digital art, show just what they are feeling in their facial expressions-help out with the spices: "Bilal breathes in the scent of turmeric, chili, cumin. Morgan sprinkles salt." But when Morgan and Elias express uncertainty ("''It smells funny,' whispers Elias"), Bilal worries, thinking that maybe "his friends won't like daal at all." After an afternoon of fun, and with more friends in tow, it's time to eat. Readers worried about how their family meals will be received can take heart: Bilal's friends eagerly try and enjoy the meal. Ages 4-8. (June) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
