Why aren’t there more educational books that speak directly to children without involving their parents? This thought motivated authors Clara Lidström and Annakarin Nyberg to create books that encourage children to be confident and do things themselves. Playfully illustrated and carefully explained, Let’s Bake is one of those books. Its sequel Let’s Garden will come out in spring 2016.
Nibbling on dough, eating cookies fresh from the oven, and frosting a cake. What child doesn’t enjoy doing these things? And even more so when they are the ones who did all the baking! The step by step instructions in Let’s Bake make it easy, safe, and fun for children to learn how to make delicious recipes including raspberry fluff, fudge cookies, and blueberry muffins. With guidance from this book, children are given the opportunity to take control and ask for help from an adult only when they want to do so.
