A Listmania! list by K. Hickman "Disco Mom" (Arlington, VA, USA)
The list author says: "I am nutso about baking and with kids age 6, 4 and 1, am always amazed at how many children's books involve or include baking. Here are a few we completely adore."
Rosie Flo's Kitchen Colouring Book
1.  Rosie Flo's Kitchen Colouring Book by Roz Streeten
The list author says:
  "This coloring book is AWESOME!  In all of Rosie Flo's books, there are gorgeous dress designs to color, plus you add your own head, hair, arms, legs and feet.  In this one, all the dresses are designed from kitchen inspiration (think whisk, forks, wedding cakes, etc.)  Almost too pretty to let your kids color."

Cook-a-Doodle-Doo!
3.  Cook-a-Doodle-Doo! by Janet Stevens
The list author says:
  "What a TREAT!  Rooster is a descendant of The Little Red Hen (yes, THAT one) and chooses to make a strawberry shortcake recipe out of her handed-down cookbook.  The usuals won't help so he enlists other, less expected, helpers who do their best and define teamwork in a slapsticky way.  As with all the best books on this list, RECIPE included in the back!"

Foodie Babies Wear Bibs (An Urban Babies Wear Black Book)
5.  Foodie Babies Wear Bibs (An Urban Babies Wear Black Book) by Michelle Sinclair Colman
The list author says:
  "We loved the first in this series, "Urban Babies Wear Black", especially when we lived in NYC.  Now I see the series has expanded, and while our kids do occasionally wear black - so flattering on everyone! - THIS book describes our kids best.  I love the pages that says and shows, "Foodie babies know their way around the kitchen."  So true!"

Panda Cake
6.  Panda Cake by Rosalie Seidler
The list author says:
  "What a gem.  "A panda cake, a panda cake!  Mama is making a panda cake!"  As you read, you find out a panda cake is a special cake, and when the ingredients end up coming from all the neighborhood animals instead of the store, you find it becomes more than the sum of its parts!"

Whopper Cake
7.  Whopper Cake by Karma Wilson
The list author says:
  "We ADORE this book!  It's Grandma's birthday and Granddad is set on making her a WHOPPER CAKE.  The language and pictures are hilarious as Granddad ignores the recipe and throws in as much of everything as he likes. And the best part?  At the end is a real recipe for a real Whopper Cake (in a 9x13 pan.)  We've made it and it's DELICIOUS!"

The Lemon Sisters
8.  The Lemon Sisters by Andrea Cheng
The list author says:
  "Only loosely about baking - really making fresh lemon ices in the snow - but I love this book so much I'm including it.  The illustrations are unparalleled and the story wonderful and fun, touching on sisters, snow fun, food, and intergenerational bonding."

Pancakes for Breakfast
13.  Pancakes for Breakfast by Tomie dePaola

Pickle-Chiffon Pie

The Baker's Dozen: A Counting Book
19.  The Baker's Dozen: A Counting Book by Dan Andreasen
The list author says:
  "Well if this book doesn't teach your kid to count, and make him/her want to become a baker as well, I don't know what will.  It rhymes, the pictures are DELECTABLE, and the baker just looks so thrilled to be doing what he does!  Makes me want to make all that stuff, too, or at least eat it."

The Lion's Share
20.  The Lion's Share by Matthew McElligott

How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World (Dragonfly Books)
21.  How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World (Dragonfly Books) by Marjorie Priceman

Sweet Dream Pie
22.  Sweet Dream Pie by Audrey Wood
The list author says:
  "I hesitate to include this one because it's almost a little creepy.  Kind of twilight-zone-ish.  That pie has extremely strange powers over the neighborhood.  Don't think I would read this to my own kids - they are easily freaked out - but others might enjoy it and the pictures are nice.  My favorite is of Ma & Pa Brindle throwing all kinds of sweets into the giant pie.  Truly a sweet dream."

23.  Too Many Pears (English/Japanese Edition) by Jackie French
The list author says:
  "Pamela is the family cow who goes to great lengths to gorge on pears.  Until the family gets an idea to overload her with pear dishes.  Funny to see how it ends.  Not sure why the English/Japanese is the only available edition.  My 5-yr-old loves this book."

Pinkalicious
24.  Pinkalicious by Victoria Kann
The list author says:
  "One rainy day, Mom says, "Let's make cupcakes," and that's where the story begins.  What a super idea!  Unfortunately things get out of hand when they color them pink and the little girl eats way too many.  Eventually she has to even things out by eating everything green she can find.  Super cute, especially for little girls."

Babyberry Pie
25.  Babyberry Pie by Heather Vogel Frederick
The list author says:
  "While a berry pie cools on the windowsill, Dad swings baby outside.  Then they "pick" him from the tree, wash him, powder ("sprinkle sugar"), and put to bed under blankets ("crust".)  Sweet, rhyming bedtime story, especially for pie lovers."
