I belong to a children's book group and have been copying your posts and want to give them the
suggestions, and your email address to the group when I report on books. I think I have them all except the first one. It is so interesting to read about as are all your emails! Love your posts. Thanks so much for your time and talent.


You cannot go wrong with all the hilarious personal cleaning lessons of Mrs Piggle Wiggle or the lemon meringue pie of Amelia Bedelia. This class sounds like fun...and I have a suspicion we are going to see a children's cookbook in your future!


I don't have any book suggestions, but reading your column on teaching 5–8 year olds how to cook reminded me of something a friend brought to work once – a sort of pamphlet from her child's school. A Kindergarten teacher had her students write out, (I guess they could write), how to make one of their favorite foods, like macaroni and cheese, brownies, peanut butter and jelly sandwich, French toast, etc. The teacher then compiled the recipes into a little book for the parents. You probably wouldn't expect it, but it was hilarious. "Add two cups of eggs, bake at 35 degrees for 7 hours, etc." Thought it was a real cute idea. Hope your class is a real joy.
