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: Betty Crocker Kids Cook! We also like 365 Foods Kids Love to Eat, but it’s not colorful, spiral-bound, and glossy. [smile]

We’re also enjoying a new copy of National Geographic Field Guide to Birds, 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 Art Lab for Kids: 52 Creative Adventures in Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Paper, and Mixed Media-For Budding Artists, by Susan and Rainer Schwake.

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