      “Ware’s picture-book representation of the belief that Buddha’s nature is in all of creation is perfect for Buddhist families or others open to the teachings of the Buddhist faith.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

      “Buddha smiles serenely from snowy mountain peaks, through summer monsoon rains and deep ocean waters, reassuring children of his calm, surrounding presence in every season. Vibrant artwork and rhythmic verses add an element of fun as the Buddha, in his traditional saffron robes, gazes peacefully from the portal of a submarine or through a taxi’s front windshield, his hand outstretched to feel the rain or feed a giraffe, or resting still in nature and in hearts around the world.”—Foreword Reviews

      “My three-year-old daughter heartily approves of this new picture book. On each page, there is a cute, big-eyed Buddha, and she loves looking for him. Sometimes he’s out in the open and easy to spot, but at other times he’s hiding—in a submarine or rocket ship or airplane. Marisa Aragón Ware’s deep appreciation for the natural world shines through on almost every page. Her illustrations are colorful and elegantly stylized, and the overall effect is magical.”—Andrea Miller, Lion’s Roar 

      “The stretch from the cosmic back to the nearness of one’s familiar surroundings brings a sense of the holy that’s present in all beings, an important understanding that can never be taught too early.”—Spirituality & Practice

      “The Mei Mei trio have nailed the easiest and best aspects of what it means to cook Chinese food at home. From sides and sauces to crucial building blocks like stocks and chile pastes. This book is the true bridge from the cuisine of our Chinese grandparents to the way people are eating today; it’s the next wave of true Chinese American food. Double Awesome Chinese Food is traditional, honest, and authentic while at the same time blowing up our conventional definitions of Chinese cooking.”—Andrew Zimmern

      “The food in this book is unique and as filled with personality as it is with flavor, as inventive as it is familiar and comforting. You’ll come away from this book wanting to jump into the kitchen. These authors have that one innate quality that all great chefs share: they know what delicious is, and more importantly, they know that delicious doesn’t have to be fussy or fancy.”—J. Kenji López-Alt, author of The Food Lab, Chief Culinary Consultant at Serious Eats, and Chef at Wursthall
       
      Double Awesome Chinese Food is chock-full of inspiring stories and fabulous recipes. Reading it brings me the same sense of joy as going into Mei Mei—I’m excited, and I know I’m going to stuff my face with amazing food. Kudos!”—Joanne Chang, author of Flour and Myers+Chang at Home

      “More than a cookbook, Maggie Battista’s A New Way to Food is a love story about her learning to accept herself and, along the way, inspiring us to evaluate our own relationships with ourselves and our bodies. If I could change one thing about it, it would be the ability to go back in time and give my younger self a copy.”Julia Turshen, author of Now & Again, Feed the Resistance, and Small Victories

      “Maggie tells her story in such an honest and approachable way, and the plant-based plan she offers is both do-able and delicious! This is the way I like to eat and she has so many great recipe ideas that I will be using.”Erin Gleeson, author of The Forest Feast

      “Maggie Battista’s A New Way to Food is more than a diverse collection of nutritious and beautiful recipes. It is an essential statement about empowerment through healthy self-care. With this cookbook/self-help hybrid, Maggie shows us more than A New Way to Food; she shows us the way to a better self.”Andie Mitchell, author of the New York Times bestselling memoir It Was Me All Along and Eating in the Middle

      A New Way to Food is filled with in-depth knowledge about realizing your beautiful authentic potential, reckoning with your past and loving yourself all while eating Maggie’s incredibly delicious recipes along the way. This cookbook is filled with fresh, clean and delicious options for any season from Blueberry Plum Crisp Pie to Sweet Potato Gnocchi. Every woman who has struggled with their health should dive into these pages and prepare to be inspired by Maggie’s journey and personal experience. I cannot recommend this cookbook enough. It will truly shift your perspective about what being healthy and beautiful really means inside and out.”Amie Valpone, best-selling author of Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation, and Reset Your Body

      “We are taken by how Maggie, through health and weight struggles, has proved we are all capable of change. Her beautiful new book is a full take on how to create a positive relationship with food and we are certain it will inspire many on their own journeys.”—David Frenkiel and Luise Vindahl, authors of Green Kitchen Stories

      “Detailing a revitalizing lifestyle change that advocates eating mindfully, [A New Way to Food] imparts gentle self-care tips that focus on letting go of setbacks and taking a wholesome approach to food. There’s less motivational cheerleading than genuine, been-there-done-that compassion. Leaving room for differences, Battista says that there’s no single way a journey should unfold.”Foreword Reviews

      “I can’t recommend this book enough.  The words are honest and encouraging and the recipes are playful and approachable and exciting!”—Joy the Baker

      “The book is in tune with current thinking that everyone is different and previous notions of how people should look — how traditional models and celebrities look — aren’t practical or realistic for most people. Happiness comes when you combine healthy eating with a healthy lifestyle and a healthy attitude about the body you’ve been given.”—Boston Globe

      The Skillful Forager is the ultimate forager’s guide to working with any wild plant in the field, kitchen, or pantry.

      From harvesting skills that will allow you to gather from the same plant again and again to highlighting how to get the most out of each and every type of wild edible, trusted expert Leda Meredith explores the most effective ways to harvest, preserve, and prepare all of your foraged foods.

      “This is a book that needed to be written—an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to be more than an armchair forager.” —Hank Shaw, author of Hunt, Gather, Cook

      “Identification is the first task of the forager, but what comes next? It turns out, almost everything. How does one select the best berries, the tenderest greens, the freshest mushrooms, and gather them in an ecologically responsible manner? What is the most practical way to clean, crack, or pit them? How can they be stored? In The Skillful Forager, Leda Meredith answers just these questions, laying out the basic skills that she has perfected through decades of gathering wild plants and using them in the kitchen. She leaves readers with a set of practical, simple, healthy, and delicious recipes that can be adapted to a variety of ingredients, wild or domestic—just the way that real home cooks cook everyday food. Because to Leda, that’s what foraged food is.” —Samuel Thayer, author of The Forager’s Harvest

      “In The Skillful Forager, Leda Meredith doesn’t just describe some of her favorite wild edibles, she lays the groundwork for you to become a better forager. Leda covers recommended plants and mushrooms, safe and mindful harvesting, and wraps it all up by describing multiple cooking and preservation techniques we all can use to make the most of our harvests. The Skillful Forager takes you from field to table with excellent information, inspiring ideas, and lots of fabulous flavor.” —Ellen Zachos, author of Backyard Foraging

      “Outdoor-adventure activities combine wisdom and fun in this practical guide to the wild. The instructions are remarkably clear, and black-and-white illustrations add visual interest, levity, and clarity when needed. Fascinating enough to read cover to cover without setting foot outside, it will also be a reliable companion on camping and hiking trips to augment hours of outdoor exploring. This in-depth guide offers plenty to learn and do for adventurers of all skill and experience levels.”—Kirkus, starred review
