DePaola, T. (2011). Strega Nona’s gift. New York: Nancy Paulsen Books.
There are many feast days that are celebrated in the village Strega Nona and Big Anthony live in. One is Epiphany, where all the townspeople cook good foods for their animals, and Strega Nona is no different. She leaves Big Anthony to feed the animals, but instead Big Anthony eats the food himself!
Genre: Fable, Picturebook
Audience: Parents, Teachers, Students
I would give this book a five. Tomie DePaola gives life to two fantastic characters and plays around with how much fun they can be.
What kinds of food do dogs and cats eat? Birds? Goats?
