It is no secret that I love being in the kitchen with my kids which is why I co-host a weekly children’s cooking series, Mini Chef Mondays. Not only is it a great opportunity to learn, but it is quality time as well. The latest book from Mo Willems, one of our favorite children’s book authors, celebrates some very tempting bread that simply can’t be resisted. It was a fun tale to enjoy with my youngest mini chef!
Today is the day Nanette gets to get the baguette! Is she set? YOU BET!
Mo Willems’ hilarious new picture book, Nanette’s Baguette, follows our plucky heroine on her first big solo trip to the bakery. But . . . will Nanette get the baguette from baker Juliette? Or will Nanette soon be beset with regret?
Set in a meticulously handcrafted-paper-modeled French village, the uniquely vibrant laugh-out-loud world of Nanette’s Baguette may be Mo’s best creation yet. Get set to krack into an irresistible tale you won’t soon forget!
Nanette’s Baguette features the always funny writing style of Mo Willems. There were so many more words that rhyme with baguette than I imagined and Mo certainly has a good time using them. I loved reading this book to Wes because it uses plenty of feeling and exclamation points, much like the Pigeon book series.
This book has lots of great descriptions and introduces several words and phrases that I know I don’t use on a regular basis like “beset with regret”. Books like these are such a great way to expand children’s vocabularies. I highly recommend this book for your personal library.
We received several baking items with our copy of Nanette’s Baguette as part our “Mo Mail.” Since Wesley is in the kitchen so much, he really appreciated getting some new tools in fun colors.
He especially loved his new apron!
Look for Nanette’s Baguette at retailers nationwide, including Amazon. It would be a great holiday gift!
