Book Review


Miss Cilla Lee-Jenkins is certain that the best traditions always involve cake. She discovers that there are many traditions to celebrate but not all of them are marked by special days. Cilla narrates the book and spends her journal pages describing her class frog, best friends, baby sister, and Auntie Eva’s upcoming wedding. Throughout the book, Cilla learns some life lessons about friendship, traditions, culture, and family. She learns that while cake is certainly an important part of any tradition, the most important part is spending time with family and making new friends.
