How This Book Came to Be:
Elizebett was born in the United States to immigrants from Terceira Island in the Azores. Soon after becoming a mom, she wanted to strengthen her family’s connection to their roots by reading bilingual books together, but she struggled to find many options written in European Portuguese. Elizebett decided to write Baking ABC for her two-year-old, M, to combine learning Portuguese with their shared love of baking. Now she hopes more families and learners will delight in reading this unique book, too!
