Book for Busy Kids


Life around home, Literature / Saturday, May 24th, 2014

The cookbook we’re using in our “Cooking School” is a delightful one from Betty Crocker: [easyazon_link asin=”0471753092″ locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”confession022-20″]Betty Crocker Kids Cook![/easyazon_link] We also like [easyazon_link asin=”1570710309″ locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”confession022-20″]365 Foods Kids Love to Eat[/easyazon_link], but it’s not colorful, spiral-bound, and glossy. [smile]

We’re also enjoying a new copy of [easyazon_link asin=”0792255623″ locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”confession022-20″]National Geographic Field Guide to Birds[/easyazon_link], specifically for Pennsylvania. This is my kinda bird book–compact, straightforward, and beautiful, with large color photographs of every bird listed. I hung a paper titled “Birds We’ve Seen” on our fridge, and any family member is welcome to add to it anytime.

And finally, we bought a marvelous art book called [easyazon_link asin=”B00BAPD1QO” locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”confession022-20″]Art Lab for Kids: 52 Creative Adventures in Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Paper, and Mixed Media-For Budding Artists[/easyazon_link], by Susan and Rainer Schwake.

I can highly recommend all of these. They’re bright, child-friendly, accessible, and flat-out gorgeous.

Enjoy!
