In the mid-1950s, legendary avant-garde composer John Cage and artist Lois Long created a truly marvelous object. Part artist's book, part cookbook, and part children's book, Mud Book is a spirited, if not satirical, take on almost every child's first attempt at cooking and making. Through the humble mud pie—add dirt and water!—Cage and Long encourage children to explore their imagination and to get their hands dirty, and they offer this warning: "Mud pies are to make and look at, not to eat."
A unique hybrid of art book, unconventional cookbook, and inspiration for young makers, this new edition of Mud Book will delight children and parents alike, and makes a charming gift for all ages.
Every child needs to make a mud pie at least once in their life. This book is about some of my favorite childhood memories! It teaches the reader how to make a real mud pie. It is such a fun and silly book and kids will delight in the instructions on how to make a mud pie. You can read the book together and then busy making your own mud pies. This book could be the bridge to some of your favorite memories for you and your kids. A must for a home library!!!
