Lisa Saunders, a grandmother in Mystic, wrote a table-setting fairytale to teach children how to set the table in a fun and memorable way. Her daughter, Jackie Tortora, co-authored Once Upon a Placemat: A Table Setting Tale, which includes recipes of the foods eaten in the story, plus germ prevention tips.
About the Book
When a young girl can't remember how to set the table, her grandmother teaches her to listen to the silverware. Learn why the table is set the way it is. Why does the knife keep a sharp eye on the plate? Why does the fork want a napkin bed and the cup insist she and the others get a bath before being shared?
