The Thank You Dish

Trace Balla

It’s dinnertime at Grace’s place…

‘Thank you, alpaca,’ says Grace…

‘Alpaca?’ asks Mama. ‘Why would you thank an alpaca?’

A playful mealtime conversation becomes a joyful act of giving thanks. From the multi-award-winning creator of Rivertime, Rockhopping and Shine

‘A heartwarming book filled with the joys of being part of a community that values growing food and sharing meals with loved ones.’ Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation


The Readings family is a big fan of Trace Balla and her fourth picture book just makes us love her more. In The Thank You Dish she celebrates community and being grateful for where and how our food arrives on our plate. Grace and Mama sit down to dinner and give thanks for the not so obvious ways they came by their meal. It is a lovely, lateral way of looking at the connections relating to our food and that there is more to it than just a supermarket. Thank you, Trace, for a charming picture book for those aged 2 and up.
