Cooking new and different foods can be a fun experience for adults and children to share. If you would like to spend some quality time with your child or grandchild while learning about different cultures, the library received some new books this week that might help. The series “Cook With Me” published by Bellwether Media includes recipes and information about several countries and their food. The series is designed to interest children and each volume is filled with vivid pictures, recipes with easy to follow directions, and interesting facts about the country and its people.
