Cora loves being in the kitchen, but she always gets stuck doing the kid jobs like licking the spoon. One day, however, when her older sisters and brother head out, Cora finally gets the chance to be Mama assistant chef. And of all the delicious Filipino dishes that dance through Cora head, she and Mama decide to make pancit, her favorite noodle dish. With Mama help, Cora does the grown-up jobs like shredding the chicken and soaking the noodles (perhaps Mama wont notice if she takes a nibble of chicken or sloshes a little water on the floor). Cora even gets to stir the noodles in the pot carefully-- while Mama supervises. When dinner is finally served, her siblings find out that Cora did all their grown-up tasks, and Cora waits anxiously to see what everyone thinks of her cooking. Dorina Lazo Gilmore text delightfully captures the warmth between mother and daughter as they share a piece of their Filipino heritage. With bright and charming illustrations by Kristi Valiant, Cora family comes alive as Cora herself becomes the family newest little chef. (32 pgs) Ages 5+
