Pay close attention to the clever, retro illustrations in This Little Bunny Can Bake by Janet Stein because they really tell the story. The action takes place at “Chef George’s School of Dessertology.” Naturally, the chef, and all of the students are animals, including the Little Bunny. The illustrations are in black and white, except for the Little Bunny, who is pale pink. Chef George tries his best to teach the class the basics of cooking, but the attention span of all but one participant, is critically lacking.
The story is cute and teaches an important lesson – how much you learn and what you accomplish in life is entirely up to you.
I read the book and looked at the pictures a few times, and I got more out of it with each read. One of my favorite parts was reading the recipes on the inside front and back covers. I think I am going to try to bake Chef George’s Crazy Coconut Macaroons. If you love to bake with your kids, you’ll both enjoy reading This Little Bunny Can Bake together.
