Pastry School in Paris

An Adventure in Capacity

Cindy Neuschwander; illustrations by Bryan Langdo

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)



The Zills family is off to Paris to see the sights and take a class at the International Pastry Academy! In class, Matt and Bibi have to measure liquids to make lollipops. It's hard work, but knowing about different liquid measurements comes in handy when the Inspector General pays a visit while everyone else is out.

The twins want to help. Will their knack for baking the best-ever brownies and their knowledge of capacity be enough to save the day?


Praise for Pastry School in Paris

“While children will enjoy the twins' slapstick culinary adventures and take in a miniature math lesson with Parisian flair in the bargain, this title will be most useful as a supplemental, more literacy-focused addition to capacity measurement units.” —School Library Journal

“Appealing watercolor illustrations suggest the Parisian setting with views of a few famous sites, but focus mainly on Bibi and Matt in the kitchen. Neuschwander...offers another upbeat narrative related to a math concept. The appended note for parents and teachers suggests seven activities that will help children explore volume in terms of liquid capacity.” —Booklist
