Reviews - What do customers think about Baking Bread With Children (Crafts Series)?
A Great Book about Baking Bread & Young Children's Development and Education May 30, 2008
I very highly recommend Bread Baking with Children. It has a great wealth of information on how to and what you need to prepare dough and bake bread, how to do this successfully with children, and why it is beneficial to do so for the children and your home or classroom. It is also very interesting and enjoyable to read and is filled with lovely anecdotes, sketches, and photographs. Any teacher, parent, or caregiver of children could benefit from and enjoy working with this book, even those with a great deal of experience. The writing is very clear, warm, and simple. From recipes, equipment, and ingredients, to mixing, rising, and kneading, to stories, songs, and poems, all is provided for someone to become a true baker and leader of children baking bread. Emphasis is given to the educational and developmental benefits for children's physical, intellectual, and spiritual growth and on ways to incorporate children's bread baking into various school subjects and for different ages. Health related issues concerning bread, wheat, and food in general, such things as sensitivities, allergies, and intolerances, alternatives to wheat, fertilizers, pesticides, and fungicides, natural and artificial ingredients, genetically modified food, and factory-baked bread are also discussed and a useful measurement conversion chart is provided. Details are even given for how to build your own earthen oven. After reading Bread Baking with Children, you will know well why some breads are good, and why other breads are not. You will know how to bake bread yourself and how to lead children in the bread baking process. And, you will know how to do both enjoyably and in ways that are healthful for you and your children's body, mind, and soul. Again, I very highly recommend this book for all who help take care of and educate our children and for anyone who would like to learn how to bake bread and why baking your own bread is so much better than buying it at the supermarket.
