Matzo Ball-Wonton Thanksgiving by Amelie Suskind Liu, Leslie Lewinter-Suskind
It’s Thanksgiving time and Amelie’s Bubbe and Nai Nai are visiting to celebrate the holiday. Amelie cannot wait for the delicious dinner of turkey, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie! But, when Bubbe and Nai Nai decide to make their famous matzo-ball and wonton soups, Amelie becomes distraught. All she wants is a “real” Thanksgiving like the one she has at school, and so, she makes a decision to do something that very well might ruin the holiday. Come along with Amelie as she reimagines what a REAL American Thanksgiving is, complete with matzo ball-wonton soup and more!
Matzo-Ball Wonton Thanksgiving is inspired by author Amelie Liu’s experience growing up as a Chinese-Jewish girl. In honor of her late father, Donald Liu, all proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the National Alliance for Children’s Grief, a nonprofit organization that focuses on supporting bereaved children and raising awareness about children’s grief.
