Bruiser Approved Book for Lil' Bakers

Don't all moms have tricks up their sleeves when it comes to keeping the peace? In Everybody Bakes Bread  by Norah Dooley and illustrated by Peter J. Thornton, a mom has got two querulous kids (a son and a daughter) stuck in her home on a rainy day. Well, this could lead to trouble, or it could lead to discovery. Mom sends her daughter on a quest for an unusual object in order to help make her Italian bread. The daughter's quest takes her around the block seeking the help of neighbors. In so doing, the daughter travels the world - and wonderful bread recipes like Coconut Bread, Challah, and Pupusas are shared. Indeed, everybody bakes bread, and when it comes to keeping the peace, everyone helps.


Totally Bruiser Approved.
