My girls love to play in the kitchen. I love to play in the kitchen. And every now and then, we create something amazing. Ha! I am not great at cooking/baking complicated things, but I can enough to impress my girls 🙂 Sometimes I receive things in the mail that gets me creating in the kitchen more than I would have been, and that’s what I’m sharing today!All About Nanette's Baguette, by Mo Willems

The past couple months we have had the privilege to get our hands on some great books that are new to the market, in conjunction with all things Mo Willems (think Elephant and Piggie). Just this week a new book was released, and I dare say it’s at the top of our fun to read list! Nanette’s Baguette, try saying that 5 times fast!Nanette's Baguette by Mo WillemsNanette’s Baguette is about….
Today is the day Nanette gets to get the baguette! Is she set? YOU BET!

Mo Willems’ hilarious new picture book, Nanette’s Baguette, follows our plucky heroine on her first big solo trip to the bakery. But . . . will Nanette get the baguette from baker Juliette? Or will Nanette soon be beset with regret?
Nanette's Baguette by Mo Willems

Set in a meticulously handcrafted-paper-modeled French village, the uniquely vibrant laugh-out-loud world of Nanette’s Baguette may be Mo’s best creation yet. Get set to krack into an irresistible tale you won’t soon forget!

We sent this book off to my 5-year old’s young fives class and they absolutely LOVED it! I received an email from her teacher moments after they finished it up. The first time that I read this to my girls, we used LOTS of expression and they were rolling with laughter and sitting on the edge of their little bums to see what would happen next. It’s a super fun read! And make sure you look for the hidden pigeon in the book. My daughter exclaimed with such joy when she found it as she was investigating the pages while I read them aloud.

While we are talking about it, wouldn’t this be a great gift for the little book lover in your life? Think Christmas!!

    That’s hard, since we love all his books, but the one we read the most is definitely “Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay up Late!” It is the most requested bed time story by all of my my four kiddo’s and I think I know every single word in the book! I have to admit it is my favorite too!
