One of my favorite features here on the Homeschool Share blog is Cook with Books. I love to cook, and I love books, so what could be more perfect? If you follow along on my personal blog, you also know that I like sharing co-op classes. Cook with Books would make a great co-op class.
I read through the past Cook with Books posts and found the ones that include picture books and shorter recipes. I compiled them below for you to look through.
This class would be simple to structure: read a book then make the corresponding recipe together. If you have time leftover at the end of class, you could choose to read more stories that relate to the first story.
Here is a sample schedule:
Week 1: Read Mouse Mess and make Cracker Snackers
Week 2: Read Harry the Dirty Dog and make Dog Bone Pretzels
Week 3: Read The Parrot Tico Tango and make Fruit Trees
Week 4: Read Five Little Monkeys and make Monkey Bread
Week 5: Read Mama Panya’s Pancakes and make Pancakes (recipe found in book)
Week 7: Read Thundercake and make Thundercake (recipe found in the book)
Week 8: Read The Three Little Pigs and make Straw Stacks
Week 9: Read The Rainbow Book and make Fruit Kabobs
Week 10: Read Cook-a-Doodle Doo and make Strawberry Shortcake (recipe found in the book)
Week 11: Read Stone Soup and make Stone Soup.
Week 12: Read A Fine Dessert: Four Centuries, Four Families, One Delicious Treat by Emily Jenkins and make Blackberry Fool (recipe found in book)
If you want to find more books with recipes, there is a huge list on this old Homeschool Share database.
Happy Reading and Happy Cooking!
