A moment of silence.
A prayer of thanksgiving.
Or a gratitude.
Families who eat meals together regularly find many ways to give thanks for the food before them - and being grateful is healthy for mind and body. Apple Cake is a gratitude, one which can be memorized and shared before each meal. The illustrations are rich with emotion and charmingly captivating.
Ideas for Making it Real
In addition to memorizing the Gratitude as a family, make an Apple Cake using the recipe - it's vegan and gluten free if you desire - at the back of the book.
