What child doesn’t like to feel and knead bread dough, watch it rise, and then taste it fresh from the oven? Not only is enormous fun for everyone, it is also invaluable to young children as they grow into our world.

These recipes have been handed down by grandmothers, mothers, aunts, and friends. They are easy to follow and encourage the baker, young and older alike, to use the best possible ingredients, making bread once again the healthy “staff of life” it once was. The Waldorf Book of Breads includes tasty breads for the daily table and specialty breads for the seasons and special occasions.

And, like the Waldorf Kindergarten Snack Book and the Waldorf Book of Soups, The Waldorf Book of Breads is spiral-bound, so it lies flat to make life in the kitchen a little easier.

Baking Bread with Children

Bread. Is there anything that evokes Life and Love more? Or smells more tantalizing when baking? Or tastes better right out of the oven?

I don't know about you, but I have been awaiting this book with an eagerness akin to that of my childhood Christmas Eves - almost unbearable, the waiting has been.

But now it is here and the book is as much of a feast as the breads it will teach you to make. Almost any kind of bread, baked almost anyway: It's all here. And, as joyful as that in itself is, what makes Bread Baking with Children truly magical is, well, the children. There is so much here to engage children - stories, folklore, songs, poems, and best of all, bread!

Bread. Christ's body broken in Love. Bread. Mother Earth's gift of Life. Bread. Millennia of human tradition, in your kitchen, with your children. Alive again!
