"The blue table is just a table until plans are made, lists written, ingredients found, pies baked, delicious things are served and poured, and families gather around it to celebrate. Then, the blue table becomes the world"--Dust jacket flap.
It's time to celebrate family, community, generosity, and giving! Two-time Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka's stunning picture book is the perfect pick to share whenever family and friends gather together to celebrate and give thanks, no matter the occasion.
Spend the day around the heart of a home: the blue table. A shopping list is written, food is prepared, and the table is set. Guests arrive, thanks are given, and a meal is shared. What then? It's time to pitch in and clean up, of course!
Limited text, bright colors, and stunning collage illustrations make The Blue Table ideal for the youngest reader and for storytime sharing. In just thirty-two pages, two-time Caldecott Medalist and New York Times-bestselling picture book creator Chris Raschka captures the very essence of community--and gratitude.
