Kindle Freebies – May 13, 2012

Today I Loaded My Kindle With…

I am a big fan of the BBC/PBS Masterpiece series, “Sherlock,” so I happily picked up a free copy of his adventures. I also grabbed a few recipe books, including one for ice pops, a Valentine’s Day puzzle book (free, so why not) and a container gardening book.

Recipe Books

10 Kitchen Treasures a Teacher Learned from His Students by Joel Debouvries
This is quite a different cookbook, as unaltered recipes from my students are included, in their authentic forms. What happens when a teacher asks his students: “What does your mom or dad like to cook mostly?” The answer is very simple: a child asking mom or dad what their favourite recipe is, and if they are willing to cook for the teacher and the classroom. As a teacher in an international school, my classrooms are filled with students from around the world. Some are expats while other students are asylum seekers, hoping for a better future. Interestingly, all these students share one thing: to proudly share one of the best foods from their countries.
