In part two of Mission Read's FOOD & PRINT book list, I turned my attention to children's books. From picture books to classics, this list represents the silly, the touching, the old and the new. Read the whole list as a family this summer. As you complete each book, make a dish (and write down the recipe) as a family that represents the story. You will have created your own FOOD & PRINT cookbook when you are finished...a personal treasure of the time you spent reading and cooking together! And as Little Pea would say, "Yum, Yum, Extra Yum!"
