Baking Baguettes with Nanette (or Your Favorite Kid)
I’ve talked before about how much I like to cook with my youngest son. Spending time in the kitchen together is a fun, low-pressure way to find out what’s going on in his life, while also teaching him an important life skill.
Reading with him is, of course, another one of my favorite activities. Although we’re past the age of picture books, Mo Willems’ books are something we continue to enjoy together. Willems’ latest hilarious adventure, Nanettes Baguette, does not disappoint, either.
For me, the best part (besides reading and laughing with my son) is the amazing illustrations. The story is set in a meticulously handcrafted-paper-modeled French village. You can see how Willems created the illustrations in this video.
I think a lot of kids and parents will be inspired to try their own paper cut outs after watching it. For me though, the book made me want some delicious bread. This is one of my favorite bread recipes for making with my kids.
Baguettes are great for turning even normal sandwiches into something special.
