What a sweet book: CoCo Levine, Cupcake Queen: Fabulous Adventures in Cooking, Crafting and Friendship. CoCo is part storybook, part recipe book, part crafts guide . . . so you can read with your kids and do the activities with them, too. The crafts include an adorable dish towel apron, cupcake soap and swamp slime (CoCo has an icky best friend named Larry Contrary who loves all things slimy and silly). The recipes include pickled frogs, and of course, cupcakes.
