Interactive textile book: The Cheesecake Book.
This book is designed for children. Through all the interactive activities and the textiles in the book, children will get to learn about the childhood memories Teasy associates with cheesecake and her mom.
The protagonist: Teasy
Teasy went to Veniero’s pastry shop in NYC.
By the time she opened the door, the sweetness in the air, the beautiful pastry display and the warm-welcoming environment reminded her of her childhood memories with cheesecake.
Every time there was a family gathering in Teasy’s home, mom would always bring over delicious cheesecake and people enjoyed it all the time.
Cheesecake to her is a symbol of bringing everyone in her family together.
Teasy thought it was interesting that everyone in her family had their own preference on where to take the first bite of their cheesecake.
When Teasy was younger, her mom would always bring her cheesecake as a surprise,
as a reward for a good grade from school,
or as a treat when they chatted and had tea together.
Teasy told her mom: Ma, when I get a job, I’ll get you a slice of cheesecake everyday. Mom laughed and kissed her cheek.
In Teasy’s heart, cheesecake is more than a pastry —
— It’s something that shows the love between her mother and she.
