Join the celebration in the kitchen as a family makes their traditional
New Year’s soup — and shares the story of how Haitian independence
came to be.

The shake-shake of maracas vibrates down to my toes.
Ti Gran’s feet tap-tap to the rhythm.

Every year, Haitians all over the world ring in the new year by eating a special
soup, a tradition dating back to the Haitian Revolution. This year, Ti Gran is
teaching Belle how to make the soup — Freedom Soup — just like she was
taught when she was a little girl. Together, they dance and clap as they
prepare the holiday feast, and Ti Gran tells Belle about the history of the
soup, the history of Belle’s family, and the history of Haiti, where Belle’s
family is from. In this celebration of cultural traditions passed from one
generation to the next, Jacqueline Alcántara’s lush illustrations bring to life
both Belle’s story and the story of the Haitian Revolution.
