This lunch is also posted over at The Little Crooked Cottage as a Literary Lunch. Head over to the fabulous blog of four children's book authors and check out the wonderful Literary Interviews with Mr. Pig himself!
MAGGI AND MILO is the adorable new book written by Juli Brenning and illustrated by Priscilla Burris. Maggi is an excellent adventurer and Milo's best friend. Milo is a Border Collie and very smart. When Maggi's Grandmother sends a package with all the necessities for a frog hunt Maggi and Milo head out almost immediately to find frogs. To find out if they are successful grab a copy of the book from your local library or book store!
A fun lunch for hungry frog hunters is packed in our Easylunchboxes:
- a little frog hiding in pineapple leaves and pineapple chunks
- strawberry yogurt with blue glitter swirls and polka dots (just like Maggi's new boots)
- a bucket (for the frog) filled with green frog bait (my kids thought green mint M&Ms would work)
- and of course Maggi and Milo peanut butter sandwiches decorated with dark chocolate.
I would recommend this book for any age to read out loud! My daughter loved Maggi and both of them share a love for dogs and rain boots! We especially enjoyed finding all the little frog details in the book and in between highlighted words made reading this book aloud fun for everyone!
