"Summer Sundays begin with picking.
Rosy-ripe peaches dipping low to the ground, sun-warmed and soft like Grandma’s lap."

Side by side with Daddy and Grandma, a young girl is determined to take part in her family’s tradition of baking the perfect peach cobbler—just like Mama used to. From picking peaches, to stirring and mixing, to kneading the dough, it’s a little bit messy. But with sure hands to guide her and her mother’s memory hanging sweet in the air, she has the recipe to make Mama proud.

This warmhearted and hopeful picture book shows that with a house full of love, everything can feel peach-perfect. 


As a child, Gabriele Davis longed to see families like hers reflected in the books she read. Now she gets to make that happen for other underrepresented readers. Gabriele holds an MA in magazine journalism and has worked as a children's magazine editor and freelance writer. She lives in the Northwest Hills of Connecticut where she tutors, teaches yoga, bikes and writes. She enjoys creating works that inspire children to laugh, love, discover their inner strength, and feel seen. Peaches, is Gabriele's debut picture book.
