Llama Llama Red Pajama

On October 6th, 2011 I will be reading "Llama Llama Red Pajama". Will you?!

Millions of children in low-income neighborhoods are at risk of school failure before they even start kindergarten. Jumpstart's Read for the Record®, presented in partnership with the Pearson Foundation, allows Americans to demand that all children receive the quality early education they deserve.
On October 6, 2011, more than 2 million voices will call for an end to America's early education achievement gap by reading Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney – setting a world record in the process! Sit down to read in your community.You'll be standing up for children everywhere! 

Pledge to help break the record:

I will be reading it to local children in the Children's Section of NYU Bookstore, for the local Greenwich Village Community, New York City. Come on by!!!
AND I will be reading it to my tot, Gabriel at home.

A great snack to go along with a story! Llamas are herbivores
A herbivore is an animal that gets its energy from eating plants, and only plants. 

Banana Cookies for Gabriel
1 cup + 2 TBsp a-p flour (wheat flour would work just fine!)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter 
2 ripe, mashed bananas
1/4 cup apple cider
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Sift together (over medium bowl) flour, baking soda & salt. Beat the butter until creamy & add bananas, beat until mixed smoothly together. Add cider, egg, & vanilla until mixed in. Slowly add the flour mixture & blend together.

Drop dough 2" apart (I use a melon baller) onto cookie sheet (I use parchment paper.) Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes or until "set".  Remove from heat & cool on a cookie rack. Makes 2 dozen cookies.

These taste like banana bread in a cookie! The consistency is more like a bread than a cookie too. It just has that cookie shape that kids love!
