Whether you're a reading specialist, librarian, or classroom teacher, it is especially important to know books. Matching books to student interest is a great motivator. It forms a bond between you and your students too. My kids LOVE to tell me about their favorite parts as well as what they hated about a book, and by knowing books, I can make informed decisions on recommending to kids and parents.
Cooking with kids teaches them so many skills including following directions, measurement, chemistry, and most importantly, reading for a purpose. If you enjoy cooking with kids, you might be curious to know book titles that tie into a cooking theme. Here are my choices and a little blurb about each.
"Cookie" Books by Amy Rosenthal

Books with a Soup Theme
If you want something healthy to balance out your cookie making, why not go with soup? There are a large number of children's books that deal with soup including Growing Vegetable Soup, Chicken Soup with Rice, Mouse Soup (discounted in my store today as part of this post...$2.00 deal), and Pumpkin Soup. Some of these are classics that often get forgotten. Stone Soup by Ann McGovern has been around for 30 years, and sharing it along with other old time tales such as The Little Red Hen and The Princess and the Pea would be great fun too. Teachers can even share multiple versions of Stone Soup. Amazon carries Stone Soup by four additional authors.
