The single best way to foster a love of reading in a child is to read to them until they are old enough to read to themselves and then to continue to encourage them to read. To do that, you need to help them make their reading personal. Nothing brings a story to life for a child like acting out the story in some way, whether that is playing a game from the story, making a treat, or having a picnic.
In Turkish Delight & Treasure Hunts: Delightful Treats and Games from Classic Children's Books Jane Brocket provides recipes and instructions for a wide variety food, games & activities from a broad selection of well loved children's literature. I've used a number of Jane's recipes from Vintage Cakes: More Than 90 Heirloom Recipes for Tremendously Good Cakes and they've always been very successful. Almost every one of these looks to be in that same vein.

Jane Brocket is British, and this book is compiled from two of her titles published in Britain, Ripping Things to Do and Cherry Cake and Ginger Beer. Although there is a definite British slant to it, it looks like this book was edited and compiled with an eye for the American market. I was happy to see this book come out, as I had a hard time getting hold of the other two in America.
