A lovely read

With the apple season just around the corner....
Another wonderful book, that I would like to share is The Apple Cake.
It is a wonderful story of an old woman walking to the market to get some apples for a cake, she brings a basket of plums to trade. On the way she trades several times always gratefully and full joy, even if it might mean that she will not get her apples, which of course in the end she does.
It is a wonderful story of giving and receiving, and the joy of sharing.
It has been one of our favorite for a long time and is enjoyed equally by Kaleena and Keenan, and what I adore about it as a momma, is the beautiful message of kindness to others and the gift sharing, as well as the watercolor/pencil pictures which leaves much for the imagination to work with.
If you haven't already, this is a wonderful book to share with your children.

~Thanks for stopping over, and a lovely day to you~
