Eat with the Wild Things
Where the Wild Things Are is one of the first books we thought about when we started exploring pairing children's books with recipes. Max gets to explore a new land and new culture with the Wild Things. What kind of food would he eat with them? How is that different from the food he's used to? When Max returns at the end of the book, the dinner his mom leaves out for him is comforting and warm, just like his return to home.
Try Messy Monster Goulash as you read Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. When you return home from your overseas adventure, make Max's mom's Snuggly Corn Chowder.
Valentine's Day is right around the corner. We like to celebrate by making cookies and sharing them with our friends and family. We decided since we wanted to start sharing Cookabook with more parents and kids, we would feature Mr. Cookie Baker and make his cookies too.
Sugar cookies are great for forming into hearts and other shapes that remind you of love. Maybe you even have some cookie cutters at your house that you can use to help. Sugar cookies are also fun to decorate with frosting and sprinkles, and you can dye frosting different colors (like red and pink) to make your cookies even more festive.
Give Mr. Cookie Baker and his Sugar Cookie recipe a try.
