Celebrate the new year and freedom with a new children’s audiobook on tradition, family, and remembrance. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss the Haitian Kompa music, the subtle sound effects, and Bahni Turpin’s skilled narration that mix together so well. Every year, Ti Gran makes FREEDOM SOUP to celebrate the Haitian Revolution, and this is the first year that Belle is invited into the kitchen to help. A great listen for young listeners to highlight the fun of cooking in the kitchen and learning from our elders, while also introducing the history of the fight for freedom from slavery in Haiti.
