From the publisher, "The shake-shake of maracas vibrates down to my toes.
Ti Gran_ã_s feet tap-tap to the rhythm.
Every year, Haitians all over the world ring in the new year by eating a special soup, a tradition dating back to the Haitian Revolution. This year, Ti Gran is teaching Belle how to make Freedom Soup just like she was taught when she was a little girl. Together, they dance and clap as they prepare the holiday feast, and Ti Gran tells Belle about the history of the soup, the history of Belle_ã_s family, and the history of Haiti, where Belle_ã_s family is from. In this celebration of cultural traditions passed from one generation to the next, Jacqueline Alcêntara_ã_s lush illustrations bring to life both Belle_ã_s story and the story of the Haitian Revolution. Tami Charles_ã_s lyrical text, as accessible as it is sensory, makes for a tale that readers will enjoy to the last drop."
