The latest book from Mo Willems is hitting stores today.

Sleep in a little this weekend, and when you get up, have the kids join you in the kitchen to make breakfast … and then take it back to the bed of course with a copy of Nanette’s Baguette to read.

This is a really simple recipe that needs an adult’s help, but kids can totally help, and customize the ingredients to their liking, for example, you could add in peppers, asparagus, mushrooms, tomatoes, or even breakfast sausage.
