Preschool/bread making recommend

One of my daycare mamas ( thank you Sarah!) brought me this book one day last month. As soon as I read it, I loved it. The story is adorable and I do not want to ruin the details. It fits right into the type of preschool/ kindergarten work we do. In the story, there are several families from various parts if the world all baking bread from their culture. Aside from the bread they make, there are other small details that show the author really did her homework rather than relying on stereotypes. On top of that, the recipes in the back are wonderful! Being a bread maker by nature I have tried making many of these breads before- not one recipe has been as simple and delicious as these. Highlighting the true intent of any bread, in any culture: to nourish many with the efficient use of time and resources.

Everybody Bakes Bread by Norah Dooley

  1. There's another book by the same author called "Everybody Cooks Rice" that does much the same thing for that all-important (at least to us) food.

    Do you know Anne Morris's "Bread, Bread, Bread" for the slightly younger/shorter attention span set?
