We were excited to get our latest Mo Mail package in the mail, and partner with Disney Hyperion again this month! Nanette’s Baguette is an adorable new book for kids by award winning author Mo Willems! My little Thomas is at that stage where he is just learning to read, and he is loving reading books!
Nanette’s Baguette is a hilarious rhyming picture book that follows Nanette on her first big trip to the bakery. But, will she actually return with the bread? I guess you will have to read to find out! I also love that it rhymes! I feel like that really helps with my kids literacy!
That cute Nanette reminded me of a certain someone in our house who likes to steal bites of bread as much as he can. Well, I don’t blame him, and he does look so innocent, doesn’t he? Who can resist a fresh loaf of bread? Not me! Have you ever made your own Baguette? Oh my, they are just perfectly crisp on the outside and soft in the center.
My favorite trick to get them nice and crusty on the outside is to spray them with water just before baking at a high temperature. If you’d like to read more about the French Baguette, and a few links to my favorite baguette recipes, be sure to check out my post from the archives, here. And, be sure to pick up your copy of Nanette’s Baguette for the kids. They will love it, and the illustrations are so great!
Be sure to check out the trailer of behind the scenes in the creation of the book with Mo Willems. So fascinating!
