* "A loving family, a verdant garden, and Gullah Geechee traditions are key ingredients to this delightful stew of a story. Delicious from 'dayclean' to 'when the sun red fa down.'" --Kirkus, starred review

* "A beautiful and delicious story that celebrates family and traditions.'" --School Library Journal, starred review

"Daise's picture book celebrates the deep bond between father and son while also introducing readers to the beautiful and lively Gullah culture. The composition and rhythmic text add energy to the melodious atmosphere . . . An expression of gratitude in the vein of Fry Bread." --BCCB
