Every month my kiddos get so excited to receive their Mo Mail! I never tell them what it’s going to be so that it’s even more exciting for them. This month we got Nanette’s Baguette by Mo Willems and baking supplies!
My kids love to bake with me so they were all about this month’s Mo Mail. Kyla couldn’t wait to get that apron on!
Since we knew baking was involved we couldn’t wait to dive into Mo Willem’s lasted book which was just recently released.
Today is the day Nanette gets to get the baguette! Is she set? YOU BET! 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!
Let me tell you guys, my kids and I can totally relate to Nanette. Baguette’s are delicious and it’s hard to imagine not devouring one as soon as it came out of the oven! My kids had a blast while I read the book and we had fun saying all the rhyming names together! At times we tried to say all the words really fast like a tongue twister. It was so much fun.
