This is a book about family traditions. Papa Tom liked to make toast. It became something everyone liked. This book also told Papa Tom’s story. He was a real person so you learn some history too.
You can also write in your own family traditions. For instance, my family celebrates Christmas. One of our traditions is the advent calendar. We do a toy one and a kindness one. Every family has a tradition. My mom says we also have a family recipe that has been passed down for generations.
I recommend this to people with a lot of family memories and traditions. This is a good book for this time of year. And if your family doesn’t have any traditions, maybe someone can start making toast.
I give this book 5 stars.
