Miss Sugar Crumb's Cooking Lesson
"Miss Sugar Crumb (don't you just love that delightful name!) seems to be a single young woman who loves the forest animals around her home. She invites these beautifully illustrated animals to come into her home and teaches them how to use measuring cups, the oven and how to read a recipe.
She and the forest friends make sugar cookies. This delightful book with exceptional illustrations is sure to be a big hit with young readers! This story has a double lesson as well. . . . be kind to your forest friends and also how to feed those around you by cooking. As Josie turtle says, “Cooking sure is a lot of work.” But Miss Sugar Crumb patiently shows the animals how to bake.
When all the cookies and goodies are baked and put on the table the friends and Miss Sugar Crumb gather around for a mid morning snack but before partaking of the goodies they all bow their heads as Miss Sugar Crumb gives thanks. I love that this story also teaches young readers to be thankful for what God has provided!
This is one of those "magical" stories where kindness and patience are the norm. The story is cute and reads smoothly. The illustrations are fantastic as you can tell by the cover picture! I love the picture of the raccoon pressing out the cookie dough. Such a sweet 5 star read for young readers!"

Mitchell, Malinda. Miss Sugar Crumb’s Cooking Lesson (published in 2010 by Tex Ware, Everett, WA). What kind of foods do you think that animals would like to make? Miss Sugar Crumb, from Miss Sugar Crumb’s Magic Kitchen, makes an encore appearance to give cooking lessons to the forest animals, who have learned to talk as a result of eating her magical food. Friend the Rabbit calls all the animals of the forest, including Jimmy Deer, Olivia Squirrel, Harold Raccoon, and different kinds of birds to come for a cooking lesson at Miss Sugar Crumb’s house. Miss Sugar Crumb tells them about measuring cups and spoons, mixing bowls, and the oven as they make some sugar cookies. Tomorrow, she will teach them how to count to twelve because there are twelve in a dozen. But what has Miss Sugar Crumb fixed all her friends for a mid-morning snack after the lesson is over?
Author Malinda Mitchell always has something worthwhile to say. Miss Sugar Crumb’s Cooking Lesson is a charming story with great art work by illustrator Nora Tapp Franzese. Youngsters who read it because it’s fun will also be introduced to cups, tablespoons, teaspoons, measuring flour and sugar or salt and baking soda, using the mixer, and preheating the oven. They will learn the value of teamwork too. In addition, there is a real sugar cookie recipe which mom or dad and the kids can try. Many children enjoy helping mom in the kitchen, and this book could be a wonderful starting point for encouraging such a situation. “Mommy, Mommy, will you help us make Miss Sugar Crumb’s sugar cookies?” That would provide many teachable moments.
