How My Parents Learned To Eat
Item No.: 151915


gift wrap?: 

By Ina R. Friedman; Illustrated by Allen Say.

This is a charming (if somewhat dated) story of how two people from different cultures endeavor to learn more about each other’s most basic custom – how to eat.

A Caucasian American sailor courts a young Japanese woman, but neither has shared a meal together yet. They secretly seek out help with their problem with amusing results. Of course this takes place in a pre-globalized time when sushi was not sold in the largest supermarket chains!

Paper: 32 pp.
