Literary Lunch: Baking Day at Grandma's

Baking Day at Grandma's, written by Anika Denise and illustrated by Christopher Denise, is a beautifully illustrated children's book about three happy bear cubs spending time at Grandma's house on Baking Day. The illustrations and story capture their coziness and love--you can almost smell the cake baking. But this cake is not for eating alone! The little cubs cut the cake into neat squares, load up the sled, and spread cheer by delivering baked treats on this winter afternoon!

And yes, the recipe for the mouth-watering chocolate cake that the cubs help Grandma bake is in the back of the book. A must-try whether you are intending to share it or not.

Nina from Mamabelly's Lunches with Love packed a delicious Baking Day lunch:
  • a piece of Grandma's chocolate cake (recipe from the book!)
  • apple slices
  • one little bear chocolate spread sandwich with a spinach leaf apron and a peanut butter-filled spoon
