Reading and eating my "Noodles" in Southgate Michigan
A lesson on diversity keyed to a book, “Everybody Brings Noodles,” read by student teacher Amanda Green to the second-graders in BethAnn Taylor’s classroom.
The book, one in a series by author Norah Dooley, is about a little girl who organizes a block party in her multi-ethnic neighborhood.
To her surprise and delight, everyone brings a different sort of pasta, her favorite food. The book includes recipes.
Green asked the Southgate children’s parents to make the dishes in the book so they could be shared during a “diversity celebration” at school, Taylor said
