Sharing the Bread by Pat Zietlow Miller is story of a very old-fashioned and traditional Thanksgiving. The story is set at the start of the 19th century and follows a family preparing a Thanksgiving feast. Every member of the family has an important role. Mama fetches the cooking pot. Daddy prepares the fire. Sister prepares the dough for bread. Narrated by the youngest child this story is written in four-line rhyming verse with repetition that makes it easy for young readers to follow.
The illustrations are beautiful and consist of muted and earthy tones. Browns, blues and greens dominate the pages but in a fantastic way, bringing the text to life.
Sharing the Bread highlights the importance of family and collaboration. This book is ideal for readers ages 4-8.
