Format: Hardcover
All children enjoy baking and mine are no exception, so this is a story which will appeal. Although my children have loved all of Allan Ahlberg's other books, including The Pencil and The Runaway Dinner, this has slightly less text making it suitable for slightly younger children - it is ideal for 3+. The story is simple; the baker bakes a lovely fresh loaf of bread and we then find out what happened to all the slices during the day. Among other things, the bread is used for toast, sandwiches, soldiers to dip in eggs and some is fed to the ducks. The illustrations have a lovely, warm glow and this is a simple story about everyday things that children will relate to. I do agree with other reviewers that it would have been nice to have had some more detail about how the bread was made, although you do see the baker mixing the dough, but overall this is a lovely gentle story which will perhaps inspire some bread making of your own.

My grand-daughter loves all of Allan Ahlberg's books, especially the Funny Bones series. When I pre-ordered this, I knew it would be greatly enjoyed. Received it earlier than expected (problem with first delivery- but 5*'s to Amazon for sorting this out)! Unfortunately, my grand-daughter was poorly but this book really cheered her up...GREAT STUFF!!! Thank you Allan Ahlberg and thank you Amazon.

After the huge hype and glowing reviews this book received on publication, I thought it was a bit disappointing. Allan Ahlberg's idea of the loaf of bread from grain to final crumb was typically (of his always brilliant books for small children) delightful, but the drawings did not lift the text as much as they should.
