I’ve discovered a whole new genre of picture book… children’s picture books that include recipes! As a homeschooling mom, it should come as 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.
I’ve shared many book lists here on The Deliberate Mom. From monthly book lists, to sharing the books we used in our preschool/kindergarten curriculum, one can easily see how much I love picture books. However, when you combine my love of books, with the love of cooking with kids, it’s evident that this genre of picture books is my favourite!
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*
Do you have any favourite children’s picture/recipe books? If so, please tell us all about them!
