Mother and Sons Kitchen Book Club

Join Theresa Luu as she presents a session of her Mother and Sons Kitchen Book Club, Wednesday, August 17, at 4 p.m. Learn practical ideas for using reading and cooking to help kids think, solve problems and make connections between concepts and real life.

Mothers and sons will read Aesop's fables and make bread dough, which they will be able to take home and bake. Theresa will explain how the process of making bread is an example of "slow and steady wins the race," as learned from the fable of "The Hare and the Tortoise," how "the power of small" as seen in the story of "The Lion and the Mouse" relates to yeast and how preparing today (the bread dough) for tomorrow (homemade bread) is a good rule to live by, as experienced in "The Grasshopper and the Ants."

For children ages 6 and up. Space is limited, so registration is required. Please call 202-282-3073 to make a reservation.
