Book Recommendation: Strega Nona


Strega Nona, a Caldecott Book Award winner written and illustrated by Tomie dePaola.

When Anthony decides to cook spaghetti in Strega Nona’s magic pot, he has no idea of the trouble he’s going to cause. Luckily, Strega Nona (Grandmother Witch in Italian) saves the day.

My children love this book, and to this day when we have pasta, they remember the lesson taught in this wonderful book.


About welcomebabysl

Welcoming a newborn baby into your home is an overwhelming experience. Like other first-time parents, you are probably experiencing feelings of excitement and anticipation, as well as anxiety and uncertainty. The next few years of your child's life are very critical, and parents play a vital role in promoting healthy growth and development. Because children don’t come with a user’s manual, parents are left to follow their instincts, rely on previous knowledge, research the answers or ask family and friends for advice. It is definitely a learning experience, but not one that has to be done alone. Welcome Baby offers several different levels of support to first-time parents.
