It is filled with cute lunches, easy to use tutorials, great information about bento box basics, techniques, and equipment. I especially love her list of foods by color. You can purchase her book HERE.
Wendy invited BBF bento bloggers to participate in a series of posts on her blog. Each post will showcase several bloggers using the same lunch making tools. The post in which I am participating will be using:
Easy Lunchboxes (ELBs), IKEA Woodland Cutters, and Food Markers - I use Americolor Gourmet Writer Pens
Usually, the lunches I make are inspired by the books I read with my son. We call them story-themed lunches. Most of the time, I base the lunches on whatever book my son happens to want to read with me. I have to admit that I specifically searched the library for books with characters to match the IKEA Woodland Cutters for these lunches.
Up the Creek by Nicholas Oldland
Fox and Crow Are NOT Friends by Melissa Wiley
We Both Read Endangered Animals
The book is made for parents and children to read together. Every two-page spread has one page for a parent to read and one page for a child to read. Boogs could have read the entire book to me, but he enjoyed both of us taking turns reading it. This book focuses on the fact that animals need food to eat, water to drink, and a safe place to live. If trees were cut down in a park, squirrels would not have a home and they would not have a place to hide if a dog chased them. It tells how regulation efforts and laws have saved humpback whales from becoming extinct. The book talks about many kinds of animals that are in danger and also tells how the reader can help.
