Celebrate the joy of baking together with this unique family cookbook.

Written by the bestselling author of Bread Baking for Beginners, who is also a homeschooling mother of three with a keen take on how to teach children useful skills, Let’s Bake Bread! is filled with foolproof recipes that will turn kids into confident bakers and helpers in the kitchen. Start with an easy-to-handle cloud dough, and your youngest will soon be making Snail Rolls and On the Run Energy Buns (all the while improving their fine motor skills). Graduate to adventure dough and kids will learn about eating seasonally while making pizza, focaccia, and flatbreads. Breads like pita, naan, and conchas highlight lessons about cultures around the world. Culminating for kids twelve and up is the holy grail for all home bakers: the simple science of sourdough. What better or more delicious way to spend quality time together?
