Mrs. Thistle's Almanac: The Pitch

Mrs. Thistle’s Almanac is a seasonal compendium for parents and families that encourages meaningful connections to the natural world, family connection, creative exploration, and a celebration of the seasons. Spanning 4 seasons, following the course of a year, Mrs. Thistle’s Almanac is divided into 52 themes prompting the reader to connect with the seasons through recipes, checklists, folklore, activities, and educational information. Focusing on food, gardening, family, and craft, Mrs. Thistle’s Almanac encourages families to build meaningful traditions and ritual into daily life by exploring what’s in season, what’s happening outside their door and in their own backyard, and the “why” behind the holidays.

Comparables: 

Mrs. Thistle's Almanac is Julia Rothman's Farm Anatomy meets All Year Round (Ann Druitt) with a bit of a Taproot magazine vibe. Other comparables are The Rhythm of Family (Amanda Blake Soule) and

Festivals, Family, and Food (Diana Carey and Judy Large).

The Little Lump of Clay - Story Concept

The Little Lump of Clay

The Little Lump of Clay is happy and content in her crisp packaging on the artist’s shelf. But one day she is torn from her wrapping, thrown onto a wheel, and pinched, prodded, and stretched. Told from the viewpoint of the clay, this story reminds us that we can do hard things and that it is those very challenges that mold and shape us into who we are. Loosely based on Jeremiah 18; 2 Timothy 2:21; Job 10: 8-9; Isaiah 64:8
