Leela's Sweet Treats

by Ali Bovis, illustrated by Ada Abigael Aco, is an early chapter book series featuring a young baker, Leela Patil, and her best friend Liam Katz. As second graders in New York City, they use their baking skills to make elementary school a little sweeter and learn valuable lessons (like how to clean up after you bake!). In the six books in the series, they brave a snowstorm that threatens to ruin their presentation of food at their school’s International Night, make a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and deal with disappointment when Leela accidentally leaves her prize dessert for Kindness Day on the bus!
