The Cooking to Learn Series is integrated reading and writing activities that motivate students to learn basic reading and writing skills with the fun step-by-step cooking activities and corresponding worksheets in these three books. The easy-to-follow recipes offer life-skills experience as students prepare food themselves using common inexpensive ingredients.

Each recipe features illustrated and non-illustrated activities to allow teachers to use the same lesson plan with students of varying abilities. Recipes in each book include a selection of breakfast, lunch or dinner, snack and dessert, and drink choices.
