Story + math + cooking = delicious!

Cooking is a great way for even young children to practice measuring, counting, and estimating, and these picture books include recipes you can make together. Early math skills are linked with higher reading and test scores later in life, and cooking is an easy way to show kids that math can be fun. Celebrate March Mathness with books, baking and cooking!
