When it is chilly outside I like to stay inside, turn the oven on, and bake. Lately, I have had a petit baking partner: my three year old son. He loves to bake with me for the obvious reason – licking the beaters. I love when he bakes with me because I use it as an opportunity to teach him counting, measuring, sharing, patience, and the importance of real food-based nutrition. I know my son and I are creating loving memories together that include warmth, aromas, teamwork and enjoying our favorite desserts together. What I also love about baking with my son are all of the adorably sweet aprons for kids.
Gyo Fujikawa is a Japanese-American illustrator who authored and illustrated dozens of children’s books between the 1960s and the 1990s. Today I thought I’d share the looks from two really cute books of hers, Sleepy Time and Let’s Play .
