Violet longs for the time when her family was connected: before life, distractions, and technology pulled them all away from each other. They used to gather at the table, with food and love, to make memories, share their lives, and revel in time spent together. But now her family has been drifting apart, and with nobody to gather around it, the table grows smaller and smaller.
Can Violet remind her family of the warmth of time spent together, and gather around the table once more?

Exquisite, expressive watercolor tells a tender story, growing from monochrome into luscious, joyful color as Violet's family is reunited around the beloved table. An ode to traditions that unite families, The Table Fable brings readers together with a universal message of gratitude.
This is an amazing book. It is just what everyone needs right now. I luckily grew up in an era where my family did sit at the family dining room table and ate meals together. We talked about our day while enjoying homemade food while enjoying each other's company.
The family table has disappeared and a lot of people don't know what they are missing. That is why this book is so lovely. Hopefully as readers read this book, the tradition will be brought back into homes all over the world. Our Table is truly appreciated and treasured.
