Remembering Mom’s Kubbat Halab

Written by Medeia Sharif
Illustrated by Paran Kim
Published by Whitman, Albert & Company

When a loved one dies, remembering them through shared experiences and the ways they expressed their love, helps with loss.

Bushra misses her mother, her dayik. So does her brother Sherzat. Mom used to help them with homework, read to them, and tuck them into bed at night. For Bushra, she would cook kubbat halab, perfectly golden rice-and-potato patties made without meat. No one can make kubbat halab quite like Mom, but Bushra wants to try.
