A couple of weeks ago, Chan wrote about a cookbook her aunt had, which was one made in school by someone. That, plus Christmas, caused similar cookbooks to come to mind.
In first grade, Ryan's class made cookbooks for their mothers for Christmas. Each child decorated the cookbook for his or her own mother.
Of course, the mothers had to be involved in helping their own children make up their cookbook pages. This little girl, one of a set of triplets, wrote her own page:
Ryan had me type his on my IBM Selectric. I always did love the script type ball.
They did it again in third grade, this time with both third grades involved.
The children typed their own pages during computer class, and printed them on sheets decorated with what look to me like Tommie de Paola illustrations.
(I should know the name of the book from which these came. I just can't remember it.)
So, this is my entry for Cookbook Wednesday with Louise at Months of Edible Celebrations! Happy Wednesday, everyone!
