It's Spring Break so I've traded in my oven mitts for my Disneyland shoes. Instead of a new recipe this week I'm posting some favorite books with some themed snacks. Because sometimes there's just not enough time to cook. (But there's almost always time for a book.)
Normally I'm pretty wary of giving my kids snacks that have hues not found in nature but we all love Trolli Sour Brite Crawlers (sour gummi worms). What better book to pair them with than Chris Barton's excellent The Day-Glo Brothers? Get this book--the true story of how two brothers invented Day-Glo colors--for any kid who is interested in science or the way things work.
The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith begs to be served with string cheese. It's up to you whether you serve the traditional mozzarella variety or something...stinkier.
