It's that time of year again. That day in February to take 15 minutes to read Canadian. Here are a few picture book favourites, and since we're still having snowy days here in Ontario, many of the books have an element of winter within their pages.
The Tea Party in the Woods - Words & Pictures by Akiko Miyakoshi - Publisher - Kids Can Press
And my 'read' for I Read Canadian Day? A Stopwatch from Grampa - Written by Loretta Garbutt & Illustrated by Carmen Mok - Published by Kids Can Press. A beautiful book about remembering, and the special relationship between grandparent and grandchild.
My version has cranberries and toasted walnuts as my pantry was lacking raisins! Rather than soft and chewy, these cookies are crispy and light - my preference in an oat-y cookie.
And don't forgot to time how long it takes to eat one cookie...but maybe, just maybe, you'll have more than one.
