The Thank You Dish
by Trace Balla
Here’s a little story that will snap your family right out of the eating dinner/watching telly trap so many of us have fallen into at the end of a busy day. Read this charming Aussie book and start a new evening routine that involves gratitude and quality time together.
Grace and her mum sit down to a meal and give thanks for the actions and the people that had a hand in creating it. The Thank You Dish helps the youngest members of the family appreciate what is on the plate in front of them and how it got there.
The illustrations are delightful and will have you skipping off to your local farmers’ market with renewed vigour.
Available from Book Depository with free shipping.
