Book Review: Baking Day at Grandma's

December 13, 2014

Baking Day at Grandma's by Anika Denise
From Miss Carole at Main Library

Here's what Miss Carole had to say about this new book:

"Baking Day at Grandma’s by Anika Denise is a real treat! 

"This lovely rhyming book begins with three little bears all bundled up to keep warm as they travel to Grandma’s little cottage.  The warm illustrations show the bears clapping and singing “It’s baking day! It’s baking day! It’s baking day at Grandma’s!”  They check the recipe book before measuring, and mixing.  They dance to music produced by a Victrola while the cake bakes.  They take extra care in decorating and wrapping each piece. 

"This book brings back fond memories of a simpler time long ago when children took joy in wholesome activities like baking with Grandma."

Thanks, Miss Carole, for an outstanding review!  Check out this book trailer for more info about the book:

Take a look at this free event kit featuring printable posters, gift tags, recipe cards, a downloadable MP3 song, and a link to a YouTube video showing some fabulous dance moves.

In addition to Baking Day at Grandma's, Anika has also written two other books, Bella and Stella Come Home and Pigs Love Potatoes, both of which feature the same charming style of illustration.

Enjoy your OWN baking day!
