Take Big Bites, by Linda Ellerbee

This is a wonderful book!

More than just a great read, it gives you the opportunity to examine not only the choices made by Ms. Ellerbee but your own as well. We all take risks, we all think from time to time, "did I make the right choice". We all need to look back and see that life was one great adventure.

This book could also have been titled " How I worked very hard and cooked up a great life, full of wonder and memories."

One could assert that these lessons are disguised within the chapters. After each adventure, arranged chronologically through the years, there is a recipe to share or end the story.

This recipe touched my heart.

Oranges for Children
adapted from:
From Chapter Fourteen, set in the year 2002

Step 1:

Buy a bag of oranges.

Step 2:

Give them to children, that don't have oranges.
