It’s no secret that I love children’s picture books. I started buying children’s books back in 1992 (when I first started my career as a child care professional). Over the years I’ve come across some fabulous books.
However, it wasn’t until I started homeschooling, that I discovered a whole new genre of picture book… the book with a recipe in it! Combine my love of books, with the love of cooking with kids, and I’m one enthusiastic, homeschooling mama!
The reading and cooking adventures started with The Red Hen, by Rebecca and Ed Emberley.
Then as I followed the Five in a Row curriculum, I discovered a couple more children’s picture books that include recipes.
I was obsessed. Today I’m sharing that obsession with you and revealing some of my favourite picture book / recipe combos!
CHILDREN’S PICTURE BOOKS THAT INCLUDE RECIPES
I love the combination reading a story and a cooking activity! I could devour these types of books! *wink*
