It’s a really busy week for us this week so I’m posting books that we will be reading this week as well as some ideas for books about the UK and classic UK authors to give some ideas if you would like to add a reading element to your cooking with children for Around the world in 12 dishes.
Our first is a classic children’s author and a book that I think most children will have in their collection – A Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. This is great for teaching colours, days of the weeks, numbers and also the life cycle of a butterfly.
Paddington Bear is another classic UK series of books – if you haven’t read the stories of the little bear from Peru found at Paddington Station in London then you really must. With his love of Marmalade Sandwiches and living with the Browns – these are books from my childhood that stand the test of time.
To find out more about the Around the World in 12 Dishes please visit my Queen of Hearts Jam Tarts and if you would like to cook up a dish and are a blogger then post about it and join in the linky below – once you have cooked with your child and you would also like to do a craft, read a book please also feel free to add these to the linky as well but remember it’s about finding out about the country United Kingdom via the food first and then other elements afterwards.
