Better Together for the Thanksgiving Meal

Hello Fellow Bakers!

I invite you to discover “Better Together for the Thanksgiving Meal”. This is a short story written and illustrated by my 9-year old daughter. Elizabeth wrote her story hoping to share an important lesson about accepting and celebrating our differences.


Ella Illustrating her Book


As many nations are enduring conflict because of injustice and discrimination, it’s important to remember that our differences are our strength. Each individual brings something unique to the table.

Better Together for the Thanksgiving Meal
is a wonderful story

A heartwarming story your children will surely enjoy. Perfect for the fall season and the Thanksgiving holiday.

Although the cutlery and the dishes families live in one cupboard, they are very different from one another. Their unique skills help them tackle any meal. However, when the Thanksgiving feast is served, their attitudes towards each other are tested.

How will the two families handle all the food when they can’t cooperate?
