I was browsing our local Anthropologie a couple of weeks ago and spotted the most adorable children’s book. The whimsical illustrations immediately caught my eye. Then, I saw the title and knew I had to get it. Julia, Child. Perfect. I knew my daughter would love it as her daddy is a chef and she is so interested in food and in the art of cooking. Written by Kyo Maclear and illustrated by Julie Morstad, the book is seriously sweet and engaging. We were inspired to bake some organic muffins (boxed of course because Mommy is definitely not the chef!). And…obviously had to dress my girl and her friend up and ask my friend to shoot a cute little photo story.
The inspirations provided by reading are endless!
In the author’s own words, “You are cordially invited to this tale for all ages about a child named Julia. While the story contains no true knowledge of the (real) Julia Child and should be taken with a grain of salt and perhaps even a generous pat of butter, we hope that you will find something here to savor. If you discover, as we have, that some stories taste best when shared with others, then all the better. Bon appétit.”
