Hi, I’m Jackie! I created Little Cooks Reading Books to
pair theme recipes with children’s books for little chef readers in your life — including fun recipe & read ideas!
I have been creating fun family websites for 22 years! I was in the education field for 20 years and have been homeschooling for 12 years, creating cooking recipes for kids, lesson plans, and crafts for kids. I created this site as part of home school to use cooking with kids ideas and kid recipes to make at home to make real food fun for kids (look for the children’s book pairings after recipes). This fun kids’ activities blog has grown from there into a fun website full of things to do for kids and family recipes! Now, we also have tons of fun with kids’ crafts, holiday games, kids activities, and family activities that we share!
Why should you add cooking with kids recipes to your learning?
Did you know that adding fun kids recipes to your at-home learning helps with things like confidence, self-esteem, and can even help with the pickiest of picky eaters!
And, we’re not just talking about baking with kids (although that is a ton of fun). We’re also talking healthy kids recipes and snacks for kids recipes that they will love!
We’re making real food fun!
