Juma Cooks Chapati by Lisa Maria Burgess. The story is in English with some Swahili vocabulary.

Juma and his sister, Sareeya, eat chapati and then sneak into the garden to make these breads by themselves, succeeding despite the antics of a marauding crow. The story introduces food, children's games, and life in a suburb of Dar es Salaam, in the East African country of Tanzania. Juma also provides his recipe for cooking chapati. The story is supplemented with a map of the city of Dar es Salaam, a map of the continent of Africa, and a ki-Swahili language glossary.
