To accompany the Farm to Book Storytime program, we have added a new video series for you to watch with your children. Each two-minute video will show you how to make a healthy snack based on one of our Storytime books.
No-Cook Farm to Book Recipes
The No-Cook Farm to Book Recipes video series teaches you and your children how to make a quick and healthy snack that is based on a Farm to Book Storytime book. Each two-minute video uses a healthful ingredient that is highlighted in a book. The recipes are fast and easy to make and can be made with your children. This video series is a fun and easy way for you to have your children try a variety of healthy foods and practice their culinary skills.
If you do the recipes with children, ages 6 to 7, we recommend that your children watch the Farm to Book Storytime video that is associated with the book before they do the recipe. If you have older children, they too will enjoy the No-Cook Farm to Book Recipes videos and making a healthy snack.
Make sure to subscribe to Spoons Across America’s YouTube channel to get updates when we post a new video, and please share our videos with your friends and family through your social media!
Apple Donuts and The Apple Orchard Riddle

In The Apple Orchard Riddle video, children learn about apples and apple orchards — including how apples are harvested, how cider is made, and the many different varieties of apples — while trying to solve a riddle. To watch the read-aloud video for The Apple Orchard Riddle click here.
