posted by Nell Minow

The latest from my very favorite series for families is Scholastic Storybook Treasures’ The Red Hen and more cooking stories.  I have one copy to give away!  Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with Hen in the subject line and tell me what you like to cook.  Don’t forget your address (US addresses only).

These adorable stories with lessons about food, friendship, and manners include:

HE RED HEN (Written and illustrated by Rebecca Emberley and Ed Emberley, narrated by Walter Mayes) Filled with humor and sparkling illustration, this is the classic story of Red Hen and her adventures in baking (and cooperation).

BREAD COMES TO LIFE (Written and illustrated by George Levenson, narrated by Lily Tomlin) Watch each step of how to bring bread to life, from the sowing of the seeds to the shaping and baking of the bread dough.

HOW DO DINOSAURS EAT THEIR FOOD? (Written and narrated by Jane Yolen, illustrated by Mark Teague) These mischievous dinosaurs show that burping, spilling and playing with one s food are not the best ways to enjoy a meal.

ARNIE THE DOUGHNUT (Written and illustrated by Gerald McDermott, narrated by Michael McKean) When Mr. Bing buys Arnie in a doughnut shop, Arnie realizes he must persuade Mr. Bing that a doughnut can be more than just a sweet snack.

In  case your children are inspired to make their own food, it also includes an easy-to-Follow Recipe for Simply Splendid Cake.
