Barchers, Suzanne I.; Rauen, Peter J.
Intended for teachers of preschool and up, this book combines three favorite pastimes: reading great books, exploring related activities, and cooking. The book lists 36 books relating to a holiday or observation, beginning with Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and ending with New Year's Eve. It summarizes each featured book and gives a related activity, experiment, or art project. The book's recipes list tools needed, ingredients needed, and detailed steps for easy preparation. The book also includes unusual observances such as Chocolate Week and International Friendship Month. It includes safety tips, conversion charts, a glossary, and booklists. Chapters are organized by month, with a final chapter for general categories. (CR)
