Pie for Breakfast: Simple Baking Recipes for Kids

We rated this book:


Hazel loves to bake sweet treats with her father. She also likes to taste them hot from the oven, even if it’s in the morning. Dad says it’s okay to have dessert for breakfast once in a while. While eating, Hazel has the idea to hold a bake sale at school to raise money for the library. She loves reading and books, so this is very exciting. She asks other children in her school to help by baking treats for the sale. Many boys and girls make their favorite treats, and everyone has different tastes and family traditions, so the variety is extensive.

From pumpkin empanadas to vegan chocolate cake, from Nankhatai cookies to strawberry mochi, thirteen scrumptious desserts are included. Each spread has a fun paragraph about a character as well as very clear instructions and a full ingredients list for the dessert. The lovely illustrations are in soft colors and filled with delightful details to keep youngsters interested. The back matter has a page of baking tips and safety measures.

This book is perfect for the middle-grade set. Most of these delicious recipes can be made without much adult supervision by responsible children aged ten and up.
