Spend a Saturday with Sunny as she prepares to visit her Grandmother “Big Momma." Big Momma teaches Sunny how to bake a homemade peach cobbler. Sunny's Peach Cobbler includes primary and extended family. Story is based upon a long standing family story and includes the original recipe.
-A lesson plan outline is also available as a Teaching Guide that assists with meaningful skill development in language, literacy, and math. Great story to aid Teacher-Child interactions in small groups. This is particularly important for supporting the learning of children who are behind, as language and literacy experts believe teachers must take an active role in supporting language and literacy development for children at risk of reading difficulties.
-Sunny’s Peach Cobbler fosters vocabulary breadth and depth by providing the recommended integration into group learning, free play, and language, conducive to structured and sequential literacy instruction.

Meet the Illustrator
Keturah’s images are world renown for having large bold beautiful hair styles and representing an underserved, but growing population of an "economically and racially diverse" community of multi-ethnic, multi-racial people; particularly focusing on consumers who identify with images that represent their rich heritage. "In high school I was asked to give a quote to go alongside my photo in the year book. Not given much time to think, I stated, "I have a dream, and I will achieve it." As an artist it's hard to find inspiration when you're being advised to give up on that dream, to find another career...a Plan B. I never developed a Plan B outside of the art industry. It's like my mind is incapable of extending itself past that realm. I didn't know what to do, where to go, or who to confide in. I only knew that this was something I had to go through and that things would get better eventually, the beautiful struggle.” "My art reflect positivity and diversity. Even when I encounter something negatively, particularly social issues, my goal is to inspire. I want people to see my work and feel encouraged. I value the importance to create awareness. Art is supposed to be beautiful, aesthetically pleasing." ~heART
