Book Review: Let’s Make Bread

Let's Make BreadLet’s Make Bread by Mari Bolte
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What might seem at first to be a simple kid’s recipe for baking a loaf of bread is really more than meets the eye. Before the baking fun begins, there’s a history of bread lesson, and a detailed description of how yeast works and what is happening to the loaf of bread as it bakes. This description is a good science lesson, and might lead your child into a greater interest in science.

And then the fun begins. With step by step instructions and plenty of pictures, your child will bake a loaf of bread. It’s an exciting accomplishment! After the recipe has been followed and the loaf of bread is cooling, there’s a few websites that could be visited, along with other recommended reading and a glossary.

With the various aspects of learning involved – reading and following instructions, dabbles in science, history, math (measuring ingredients) and language skills, I could definitely see this book becoming popular with homeschoolers. But there’s value in store for every child, and their parents, too. What a great way to bond with your child and create a good memory.

My thanks to author Mari Bolte, Norwood House Press, and NetGalley for allowing me to read a digital advance review copy of this book. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.
