ABOUT THIS BOOK

Celebrate food and family with this heartwarming Thanksgiving picture book. We will share the risen bread. / Our made-with-love Thanksgiving spread. / Grateful to be warm and fed. / We will share the bread. In this spirited ode to the holiday, set at the turn of the twentieth century, a large family works together to make their special meal. Mama prepares the turkey, Daddy tends the fire, Sister kneads, and Brother bastes. Everyone—from Grandma and Grandpa to the littlest baby—has a special job to do. Told in spare, rhythmic verse and lively illustrations, Sharing the Bread is a perfect read-aloud to celebrate the Thanksgiving tradition.

"A warm and wonderful holiday treasure." —Publishers Weekly, Starred

"A paean to the pleasures of Thanksgiving, with rhymes so musical readers may just burst into song." —The Wall Street Journal

"A delightful holiday book that shows the heartwarming tradition of food and family." —Booklist

She is also the author of Wherever You Go. Thanksgiving is her favorite holiday, and every year her family works together to make a meal, almost as well as the family in this book.

Jill McElmurry has illustrated many picture books for children, including the bestseller Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle, The Tree Lady by H. Joseph Hopkins, and Mario Makes a Move, which she also wrote. When she was fifteen, her family was invited to Thanksgiving in a giant Queen Anne–style Victorian house. Every table was laden with gorgeous treats, and she ate so much she couldn’t stand up straight for two days. Jill lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Learn more at jillmcelmurry.com.
