Our Table

Suggested Activities

For Parents and Caregivers

Next Walk selected “Our Table” as a contemporary look at the American family and how we can come together. Many of us long to be more connected to our loved ones, so this story is great for all ages.

The book summary: 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?
