You can almost hear the different voices, from Grandma gossiping about Aunt Martha’s pie, to Uncle Luther serving up his famous cinnamon bread. Teeka’s narration introduces you to all her family members who bring a variety of home-made treats to share on a Sunday picnic. Teeka’s sassy commentary will make you chuckle, as you enjoy in a beautifully illustrated picnic full of soul food specialties.
