The best recipe ever!

A Recipe for Playtime by Peter Bentley & Sarah Massini

Just had to take some time to talk about this beautifully illustrated book: A Recipe for Playtime by Peter Bentley & Sarah Massini. We discovered it on a recent library trip and it’s been a big hit, particularly for Carson (and me).

The story is written like a recipe but is about all the fun things to do at playtime, like paint, play hide-and-seek and much more.

“Take a box of coloured blocks. Lift up lid. Tip up box. See them rising… add one more… See them TUMBLE to the floor.”

After all the fun it’s time to snuggle with a good book and have a nap.

“Softly, softly, creep away. Soon we’ll be back to play.”

I love how the story is written like you are following a recipe. The colourful illustrations and rhyming text adds to the enjoyment of the book.

We recommend following this recipe, the best recipe ever!
