Does Nanette forget the baguette and become upset? Find out in this fun, tongue-twisting tale by the beloved author/illustrator Mo Willems.

Summary – Nanette is a little French girl who gets to go get the baguette for her family for the first time. Her mother gives her a coin and sends her to the bakery. When she finally gets the bread, it’s too tempting and she eats the whole thing before she gets home. With the rhyming words and funny illustrations, Nanette’s story is irresistible for kids, just like the warm bread.

Personal Response – This book was another of Willems’ creations that just makes it so easy to relate to the characters. What person hasn’t melted at the smell of warm bread? The fact that at the end of the book, Nanette’s mother, who calmly walked back to the bakery with her to get another baguette, can’t resist either, makes the book even more fun for kids to read.

Curricular Connections – Younger elementary students could learn about forgiveness and that it’s ok to make mistakes from this book. They could discuss/tell stories about a time when their parents were understanding and forgiving, or when they made a mistake. ( )

This story follows Nanette who has been given her biggest responsibility yet, to go buy a baguette.

The word choice and rhyming for this book are smart and wonderful. The first couple pages were definitely tongue twisters for me and it took some getting used to, but I could read it fine the second time around. Children will love this story, especially if you serve them a nice warm baguette while reading it.

Apart from it clever rhyming this story also has a message. Your world isn't over because of one simple mistake, it's all about forgiveness and understanding. If you want a book that will make you smile everytime you read it? This is it. ( )

Mo Willems is a brilliant artist, and the simplicity with which he does it is absolutely genius. When my better half brings home a load of new picture books to test drive, we usually end up a slew of duds, a few fun ones, and, if we're lucky, a genuinely good find. With Mo's newest book--Nanette's Baguettes--it's pure genius. The art is bright, playful, and fun, and the story is just as delightful. "There is no greatness where there is not simplicity," said Tolstoy in War and Peace, and Tolstoy could have learned the lesson well from Willems. ( )
