KIRKUS REVIEW

 The team behind Everybody Cooks Rice (1991, not reviewed) returns to the same multiethnic neighborhood on a rainy day when everyone is inside baking bread. Carrie and her little brother are fighting, so their mother sends Carrie out to borrow ``a three-handled rolling pin.'' As she makes the rounds of the neighbors' houses on this fool's errand, Carrie samples Barbadian coconut bread, Indian chapatis (readers never see these), Southern cornbread, pita, challah, pupusas, and her own mother's Italian bread. Recipes for all seven breads follow; adult help is required for most. Although the plot is very much driven by the mission--to show bread from various traditions- -and subplots about a planned kickball game or large puddles only pad it out, this is an appealing combination of story and cookbook. (Picture book. 5-10)
