A Fine Dessert

By Emily Jenkins, Illustrated by Sophie Blackall

Four centuries, four families, one delicious treat. A mother and daughter in colonial England pick berries and prepare a Blackberry Fool for dessert.  100 years later, a slave woman and her child do the same.  Followed by another family and another family.  There is a simplicity to the story that ties all of us together, and it's a beautiful thing.  P.S. If you have ever licked the spoon, you'll love this story. Ages 3+
