How Batistine Made Bread

Batistine lived in the olden days, long before your great-, great-, great-, great grandmother’s mother was even born.  Mostly she liked to climb trees or watch her mother and father make things around the farm.  But when she turned seven, she wanted to make her own breakfast all by herself – from scratch!

You and your children can follow Batistine has she milks the cow, gathers eggs, harvests and winnows the wheat, grinds flour and much more, until at last she has baked a fragrant loaf of bread and is ready for breakfast!

Wonderful for any child, Treska Lindsey’s warm recapturing the wonder of what ‘bread’ is really all about, How Batistine Made Bread is especially suited for children about age 8 or 9, who are ready for the cooking part of the Waldorf 3rd grade curriculum.

  1. I love this book. The story of baking bread is a “must” for young children, and Treska’s exquisite illustrations delight me. I particularly like the way she captures the dynamics between Batistine and the farm animals- such a loving innocence!

  2. I absolutely adore this book! Treska’s work is in our classroom collection, right alongside classic authors like Elsa Beskow and Sibylle von Olfers. The children in our Waldorf kindergarten delight in the story and how much it reflects the joyful work we do each week to bake our own bread. Batistine is such a rich, inspiring character – so worthy of imitation! This is a sweet, wholesome tale children of all ages can delight in.
