Food & Print: Perfect Together!

What's better than reading and cooking with your kids? From picture books to classics, this list represents the silly, the touching, the old and the new.  Choose one book per week and read it as a family.  As you complete each book, cook a dish together that, for you, represents the story. Have your children write down the recipes. When you finish the list, you will have created your own FOOD & PRINT cookbook...a personal treasure of the time spent reading and cooking with your favorite people!  And as Little Pea would say, "Yum, Yum, Extra Yum!"
