Book Response: Charlotte's Web by E.B. White

I remember getting my first copy of Charlotte’s Web when I was in grade 1. The Christmas tree was in the living room window and I lay down right in front of it on my back with the book raised in the air. I was so excited to read it. My Dad caught on to my excitement and lay down beside me to read it aloud.

One of the first illustrations in the book is of Avery Arable. It was exciting for me to find a book where one of the characters had the same name as me. It didn’t matter whether or not his role was big or small – he had the same name!

My Food Story Part 1: Childhood

My love of food spills over into every aspect of my life including my writing and editing work. I’d just like to share a bit of that story with you. This is Part 1 of a 3-part series.

Good Food and Family

My appreciation for good wholesome food began with family gatherings where we would share food around the table. There would be a spread of freshly made buns, fruits, vegetables, cheese, cold cuts, and of course, baked goods. There are many amazing bakers in my family. Since that role is already filled, I gravitate to towards cooking, but that is a story for another day.
