Shall we combine my love of baking and books into one fabulous title? Yes, please! How to Bake a Book may seem like a silly title until you open it up and realize this recipe is exactly what you need for a delicious story. I think I read this to my girls at least 5 times today… they’re completely smitten.
Aside from the grand literary ingredients, I love the whimsical illustrations, textures, patterns and vivid colors included on each page. I seriously would like to live right inside this pages of this book!
Even though this book is suggested for ages 3-6, I think it ties in nicely with some of the concepts Miss E is learning in second grade. Add in a few talking points about what makes a good story, and writing etiquette, then finish it off with my favorite cake recipe from Magnolia Bakery. Enjoy!
