The last few months I’ve had the pleasure of partnering with Disney Books as a Mo Willems ambassador. The new children’s books we’ve been introduced to have been so enjoyed, and read over and over again.
The latest book by Mo Willems, Nanette’s Baguette, hit the shelves in stores on October 25. I just know you’re going to love this book as much as Tati and I do.
Mo Willems’ hilarious new picture book, Nanette’s Baguette, follows our plucky heroine on her first big solo trip to the bakery. But . . . will Nanette get the baguette from baker Juliette? Or will Nanette soon be beset with regret?
Set in a meticulously handcrafted-paper-modeled French village, the uniquely vibrant laugh-out-loud world of Nanette’s Baguette may be Mo’s best creation yet. Get set to krack into an irresistible tale you won’t soon forget!
Your kids are going to love how bright and colorful this book is. They’re especially going to love how the story rhymes. It’s so much fun to read!
Today is the day Nanette gets to get the baguette! Is she set? YOU BET!
Nanette’s mother sends her to the bakery for the very first time to pick up a baguette. On her way to the bakery, Nanette comes across a few distractions. Nanette stays the course and finally gets a baguette, but can she resist tasting it?
Nanette loves to eat baguette, especially when it’s fresh from the bakery. It’s so warm. It smells and tastes wonderful.
Nanette’s Baguette inspired Tati and I to make our own delicious baguette snack. As a kid, I loved nothing more than a jelly and cheese sandwich after school. This updated version is made with sliced baguette, Swiss cheese, and blueberry preserves.
Tati loves cooking and helping out in the kitchen. Cupcakes are her specialty, but she had a lot of fun making this baguette snack. She especially liked that this was a snack she could put together all by herself.
This is such a tasty treat. Just use your favorite cheese and your favorite jam. You could even make PB&J baguette snacks.
Along with our copy of Nanette’s Baguette, we received some branded baking materials including a whisk, spatula, mixing bowls, measuring spoons, and a kid’s apron. Be sure to enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post to win a prize pack containing the same items that we received!
