    With a little know-how, anyone can transform a few basic ingredients into a delicious, sustaining loaf of bread. Baking Bread with Children has everything you need to share the magic of baking with children of all ages. The techniques and recipes are cleverly seasoned with stories, songs (with music), and poems that make the whole process truly enjoyable for everyone.

    Included are instructions for building and using a bread oven, baking projects for kindergarten and school, and useful information on nutrition.
