It was a starchy but delicious story time today.
Hooray for Bread!
story by Allan Ahlberg
illustrations by Bruce Ingman
Full disclosure: I was given a loaf of bread as a gag gift when I was 10. Gag or not, I ate it! THAT'S how long and deep my love of bread is. So hooray, indeed! Ahlberg's enthusiasm and gentle humor and Ingman's cheerful and quirky style suit each other perfectly. Also check out their previous collaborations: The Pencil, Previously, Everyone was a Baby Once, and The Runaway Dinner.
The French Fry King
story and illustrations by Roge
A sweet and clever story about finding one's passion. Also, it will make you crave fresh fries. And corn-on-the-cob. And shepherd's pie.
We assembled a cardboard-tube baker like this one, except we substituted a loaf of bread for the cake. Cutting skills are often difficult to master, so the kids worked hard, but they were thrilled with their results and spent a few minutes after they finished introducing their bakers to each other and making up stories about them.
